Join us for the Paws for Life Rescue inaugural Quartermania fundraising event to cover medical costs for the homeless pets in our care. $20 admission covers three auction paddles, plus a fourth bonus paddle for those who purchase tickets online in advance.
Participants will also enjoy a very reasonably priced cash bar, lunch, raffles, silent auction, shopping the vendor area, playing the wine tree and hoping to win the Basket of Oblivion, which is one giant basket of a variety of liquor, beer, wine and champagne.
Doors open at noon. Peruse the auction and raffle items. Choose your seat. Shop the vendors. Grab some lunch.
Quarter Auction begins at 1 p.m. Let the paddle raising begin!
Raffles and Silent Auctions end at 4 p.m.
Event ends at 5 p.m.
QUARTERMANIA: HOW DOES IT WORK?
Beginning at 1 p.m., our auctioneer will call for bids to win an item or a basket of items ($20 minimum value). If you want to win the item, you hold up your paddle and place a quarter in the bucket for each paddle you raise. The auctioneer will draw a number and if that number matches your paddle, you win the item! Raise as many paddles as you want, depending on how badly you want to win the item. Play as few or as many auctions as you want.
Get started or finish up your holiday shopping!
This event is open to everyone and is fun for all ages. Parking is free.
