The Literacy Council’s Scrabble® Mania Online Auction for Literacy opens for bidding at noon Sunday, May 17 through 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 23! Normally held as a silent auction during our annual Scrabble® Mania for Literacy fundraiser, the event had to be cancelled due to the current COVID-19 public health crisis.
The proceeds from this auction will support our tutoring, community classes, parent and workplace literacy programs, so our adult learners gain the fundamental reading and other English language skills that are critical to carrying out everyday life functions to provide for their families and contribute to the well-being and prosperity of our community.
Please help us reach our goal of $8,000!
We wish we could thank our Scrabble® participants, sponsors and silent auction contributors in person, but please view our sincere appreciation to all in our special Tribute Book.
Silent Auction Dates: Sunday, May 17 LIVE at 12 noon through Saturday, May 23 at 7:00 p.m.
Silent Auction Online Site: Visit our site through Bidding Owl to view over 90 featured items! Beginning Sunday, May 17 through Saturday, May 23rd, you can bid on items that include dining, winery and brewery tours and tastings, art, crafts, sports, and travel!
