Quarters' Auction Fundraiser for Serenity Farm Equine Sanctuary

What exactly is a Quarters’ Auction? Let’s say you and a friend agree to give it a try. At the admission table you each pay $1 and get your paddle with a number on it. Say for example your paddle is number 35. As you enter the room with paddle in hand, you see tables along the walls with direct sales vendors. Their tables are decorated with all sorts of fun things available for you to browse and shop. Walking from table to table you find great items for the kitchen, home decor, food, fashion and more. You hear the announcer call for the start of the auction…it’s time to find your seats. The announcer takes the stage and welcomes everyone; explaining that the proceeds from this event all go to Serenity Farm Equine Sanctuary, which is a small family-owned Equine Sanctuary rescuing and rehabilitating unwanted and seized equine from Virginia. Then, with an entertaining waive of his arms he presents the first item for bid. He announces that the bid for the item is 75 cents. Yep, just 75 cents! And now it’s your turn to decide…do you want to play by bidding on this first item? Yes, of course you do! You toss your 75 cents into the table bucket and raise your paddle. Your number 35 is waving high for the host to see. Next you see the host draw a number from the basket. If it’s your number then you win this first item. And if you won, you just paid 75 cents for something AWESOME. If you didn’t win, that’s okay there are more chances to bid coming right up ~ and with every item you have the opportunity to bid; so you could win several times during the event!

Are you ready to break up those mid-winter blues with a night of shopping, snacks, laughter and fun? At our previous Quarters Auctions, we have had home decor items, homemade bath and pampering items, specialty food items, jewelry, Scentsy, Pampered Chef, and other fabulous vendors. There are auction items and giveaways change at each event, so we are excited who will register this go-around. Admission is only $1 but bring a roll or two of quarters so you can join in on the action. Seating is limited to 120 players, and PRE-REGISTRATION is REQUIRED no later than Tuesday, February 1st or when 120 seats have been sold, whichever comes first. Concessions will be available so don’t worry about stopping for dinner. Shop early, shop during the concession break, and shop after the auction stops~there will be plenty of opportunities to purchase those items you might not have won! So, get your friends together and make your plans now to attend this fun event! VENDORS WANTED!
