Silent auction online
Brodhead Watershed Association is bringing the outdoors online for its annual auction fundraiser, to be held virtually Sept. 16-26, 2020.
Each year during BWA’s annual Members & Friends Celebration, generous donors duke it out over the best stuff in the ever-popular Silent Auction. It’s one of BWA’s biggest fundraisers of the year, and does so much to help protect water quality in the Poconos.
While the in-person celebration and auction have been moved online this year because of COVID-19, the event carries the theme of “Get Outdoors Poconos,” featuring exciting experiences, outings, gift certificates from restaurants and more! The prizes – more than 60 items – have a retail value of approximately $8,000.
Up for bids will be Longwood Gardens tickets, a rain barrel hand-painted by John James, a one-night stay with breakfast at Skytop Lodge, a three-season garden tour and native plant landscape consultation, guided flyfishing experiences, river paddling and more!
Bidding is open 11:59 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, and closes at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26. BWA will mail prizes such as gift certificates to winners via postal mail. If the size of the prize precludes mailing, pickup will be arranged in East Stroudsburg.
