CLASS on-line auction has $17,000 in available items

June 23, 2022   ·   0 Comments

Community Living Association for South Simcoe (CLASS) is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year of providing support and services to communities in the area.

This year also marks the return of their annual golf tournament which has been held for 27 years and is held at the Nottawasaga Resort golf course.

The tournament was on hiatus for the past two years due to the pandemic.

In conjunction with the golf tournament, CLASS will host an online silent auction with items totalling $17,000 up for bid. All the silent auction items were donated by local business and individuals.

“We usually have the silent auction with the golf tournament, but because we couldn’t have the tournament for that past two years we decided to transition to an on-line auction,” explained Barbara Barta, Marketing and Communications Manager at CLASS. “At the time of planning tournament back in January we weren’t sure how things would happen with COVID. The virtual event also opens the auction to the entire community rather than just to the golfers.”

There are many interesting items up for bid, including $1,000 in travel points, an espresso coffee maker, a fridge, and even some mattresses available.

“Our sponsors and donors and local businesses donated items,” Ms. Barta explained. “We have 70 items listed in the auction.”

If you would like to take a look at the items up for auction, you can view them on the CLASS website at www.class.on.ca and there is a link directly to the auction site.

You don’t have to register to view the items, however, to make an offer you must register to place your bid.

The site will tell if you if you’ve already been outbid. There is also a feature of an auto-bid if you really want to win an item.

The golf tournament took place on June 22.

The online auction will be open until noon on June 24.
