Quarter Auction Fundraiser for Hero Project
February 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us at the Quarter Auction to benefit Salute to the Brave Hero Project.
Have you ever heard of a Quarter Auction?
No problem, we’ll show you how to play. Bring friends and some rolls of quarters and join us for a fun day out with chances to win prizes for not a lot of money! Auction starts at 6:30
Upon arrival, head over to the paddle table, rent your paddle $3 or 2 for $5. When you rent your paddle(s), a poker chip matching your paddle number will go into a draw container used for drawing winning raffle numbers throughout the evening.
Food and drinks can be ordered at the restaurant. No outside food permitted. When the auction begins, each item will be presented and raffled, one by one. You’ll use your quarters and paddles for a chance to win. The number of quarters does not go up, but rather you “bid” the requested number of quarters (typically 2-4) on the item for a chance to win that item! The retail value of items is from $20 to $100.
Once you deposit the required number of quarters per paddle you’ll raise your paddle in the air. The quarters are dropped into small buckets on the table and collected. We will begin drawing numbers from the chips matching the rented paddles. If your number is called and you had put your quarters in, you’re the winner! If the number called didn’t participate, we continue to pull until a number is called for someone who has bid and has their paddle in the air. Then we move on to the next auction item.
Typically, there are 2 raffle rounds with a break between the 2 rounds, so you can make sure you’ve registered for the door prizes, shop & grab more refreshments. 2 auction rounds, a door prize round, and a drawing for the 50/50 winner.
This is a rain or shine event. Severe weather would cancel any outdoor vendors, if any. Vending fee is $25. Includes table and chair. Please email the event coordinator at email@example.com or message our Facebook page.
