TOOL–An inaugural Quarter Auction to benefit the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake is set for 4-6 p.m. today (Sunday) at the former Optimist Hall in Seven Points.
The event is low-cost fun for the entire family, as products can be won for mere quarters. It is a cross between bingo and an auction with a lot of luck in the mix.
Participating vendors will feature their products in a marketplace, and each vendor will also offer four items up to the auction.
Bidding paddles are sold at the door for $2 each, with proceeds to benefit the animal shelter. Each vendor determines the number of quarters needed to bid on each item with a quarter value of about $10.
To qualify for the numerous door prizes, visitors get each vendor to sign off on their paper slip. No purchases are required. These slips are then deposited for drawings throughout the two-hour event.
