Prince Rupert Rotary Auctions raises over $50,000

Although donated items were down this year, the Prince Rupert Rotary Club still managed to raise over $50,000 in the Rotary Auction.

Although donated items were slightly down this year, the Prince Rupert Rotary Club still managed to raise over $50,000 in the 47th annual Rotary Auction, funds that will help North Coast projects stay in motion.

This year, the 669 items that were put up for auction earned $49,537, with the 750 raffle ticket sales bringing the total to $53,340 before expenses. Although auction revenue was slightly down for 2010’s Rotary Auction earnings of $50,251, Rotary Auction co-chair, Tim Dressel, says he is still very satisfied.

“I am very pleased with the results of the auction this year. Donations were down by almost $10,000 yet the auction net was only down 1.5 per cent.

Community and business participation turned out to be the best in years,” he said.

Items being auctioned off this year included trips around the Province, tours, gift certificates for a variety of different things, home renovations, beautiful printed pictures, televisions, furniture, food and much more.

The Prince Rupert Rotary Club hosts auctions each year to help raise funds to be put towards projects on the North Coast, including apple programs in the schools, literacy projects, back pack projects, and supporting community events like Udder Fest and more.
