Big haul for Plymouth Rotary Auction
Money will go to area non-profits
The 17th annual Rotary Auction on cable television netted $55,724.92 – all of which will be donated to local nonprofit organizations.
Some 650 items valued at more than $110,000 were sold at the auction in March. The merchandise and gift certificates were donated by local businesses and individuals to help the Rotary Club raise money in support of deserving charities and community groups.
Some of these include Salvation Army, Nathan Hale Foundation, South Shore Community Action Council, Girl and Boy Scouts, Plymouth Boys & Girls Club, Plymouth Coalition for the Homeless, Plymouth Community Arts Center, Plymouth Council on Aging, Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra, Plymouth Public Library and America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration.
“We are thrilled by the success of this year’s Rotary Auction,” said Donna Ouellette, President-Elect of the Rotary Club of Plymouth and chair of this year’s Rotary Auction. “This money will enable us to help many nonprofit programs in the area that need funding to provide services to the community.”
The Live TV Auction by the Rotary Club of Plymouth was broadcast live in Plymouth, Kingston, Carver, Duxbury and Marshfield by PACTV. Viewers called in to bid on items during the broadcast in hopes of getting bargains on vacation packages, tickets to Boston sports teams, overnight stays at area hotels, jewelry, women’s fashions and accessories, artwork, appliances and tools.
