Eastside Community Ministry Chair-ity Auction
Updated: Feb 17, 2020
On Friday, February 14, 2020 The Muskingum County Literacy Council participated in The Eastside Community Ministry's Chair-ity Auction. The MCLC offered a basket filled with books, stuffed animals, and a Barnes & Noble gift card, along with a novelty chair, a classroom read-along, a visit from BARD, and new Scholastic books for the winning bidder's class in the auction.
Project and Volunteer Coordinator, Monica Mohr, presented the basket, along with BARD, in the live auction. BARD hyped the crowd and managed to bring the winning bid to $200 for the basket and incentives! In a surprise move, the MCLC doubled down and offered a second, identical lot which went for $175!
Eastside Community Ministry raised over $30,000 for their worthy organization this year. Thank you so much to our wonderful and supportive community members for coming out, showing your love and support, and opening your hearts and wallets!
Also, a huge thank you to our BARD volunteers and to our Community Literacy Liaison, Cindy Lawyer, for all of her hard work and dedication! Please check out the video below to see the bidding wars!
