Auction to benefit Coats and Boots for Kids

December 5, 2012

PERE MARQUETTE TWP. — A charity auction to benefit Coats and Boots for Kids of Mason County will be held  Thursday, Dec. 6 at the United Methodist Church of Ludington on Bryant Road.  Admission is free but there are a limited number of tickets for entry. Attendees are encouraged to bring rolls of quarters. The event is for ages 13 and over.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m., auction starts at 5:30 p.m. Concessions will be available.

How does a Quarter Auction work??

Your ticket gets you a paddle with a number on it. There will also be a corresponding ball in the bucket with that number on it. The “caller” shows the item up for bid and gives you a brief description and the amount of quarters it will take to bid on it.

Then they say OK, bids in and they pass a bucket down your table. If you want to bid, you throw your quarter(s) in the bucket. If you put a quarter(s) in the bucket, you hold your paddle up. There are balls in a big bucket by the caller with all the paddle numbers in it he’ll reach in and pull out a number. If you’re holding a paddle up with that number on it you win the item.

Open shopping for ticket holders will be one hour prior to the auction and one hour after.
