The Prince Rupert Rotary Club is preparing for the 48th annual Rotary Auction starting on Monday, Nov. 19.

“The auction is our main fundraiser event of the year. It gives us money to donate back to non-profit groups in the community,” said Brian Munson, the 2012 auction co-chair.

This year’s auction has $76,000 worth of items to be auctioned off, including items for home renovations, fishing charters and sightseeing trips, hotel stays, trips around the province, gift certificates, food, appliances, fitness equipment, electronics, clothing, performances passes and more.

The Rotary Auction will take place on Nov. 19, Nov. 20 and Nov. 21 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily, and will be happening live at the Lester Centre of the Arts. People interested are welcome to observe in person, however, bidding can also take place in the comfort of home over the internet or telephone.

The auction will be broadcast on local Channel 10. Those wanting to make a bid can call 627-8666.

Additionally, online bidding started on Nov. 12, and will continue throughout the auction. People can currently pre-bid on items they are interested in, but must first register for a buyer ID online.

Winning bidders will have items delivered to their homes.

To raise additional funds, the club will be selling 750 tickets again this year, with a grand prize of $1,500 cash, $700 for second place and $250 for third. Tickets will be available for purchase during the auction, or by contacting a Rotarian.
