The auction will run from Thursday, May 1 through Thursday, May 15 and can be accessed at www.biddingforgood


Each week, new items will be added to the catalog to preview before the auction begins.

The goal is to raise $10,000 to support LAR youth programs by providing scholarships for underprivileged youth.

Last year, more than 500 youth scholarships were offered so that kids could participate in the various sports programs offered at LAR. JHS marketing students will also receive a portion of the proceeds from the auction.

Students from the program will visit with local businesses to ask for items or gift cards to be auctioned.

All businesses that donate to the auction will have a hot link to their business website next to the item donated.

If a business wants to donate an item or be a sponsor, leave a message at (320) 290-8537.
