Bidding For Good

It is hosted online on  Now in its fourth year, this online auction of items brings in the most money of any of the fundraisers of this congregation. The more items that are donated, the more money we raise!


Have gift cards that are not being used? Do you frequent retailers, restaurants and services that you could ask for a $25-$50 gift card donation? Whether you have one card or many to contribute, your participation is an invaluable part of our fundraising efforts.


By donating an item or service directly online, you’ll be helping to raise money for our organization and you’ll receive a mention on this online website that can link back to your own web page.


We need your gift cards, tickets or other treasures to place in our auction. If you have a donation, please email John Magadieu at – with our thanks.
