The Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair is planning for its annual TV Auction campaign, marking the 28th year that Rotarians will partner with TV Cogeco to raise funds to undertake important charity work in this community. Members are hard at work seeking donations of merchandise, gift certificates or sports tickets from the local business community.

“The auction has rebranded itself this year,” explains organizer John Weese. “The theme ‘Raise a Little Help’ reverberates through all of the projects Rotary Clubs undertake. We also thought it was a fun word-play related to raising bids, raising funds and raising paddles at the auction.”

Over the next few weeks, Rotarians will be seeking the assistance of many regional businesses to help support the important work they do in our local community and beyond through donations of items valued at a minimum of $100. If your business or organization would like to make a donation or participate in a sponsorship opportunity, please contact [email protected]. All gifts and donors will be recognized on TV Cogeco. Additionally, items valued in excess of $500 will receive special recognition.

“Last year, with the generous support of local industries and businesses, we were able to raise $49,000 through this exciting fundraising initiative to help fund community and world-wide service projects for Rotary,” adds Mary Lou Decou, Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair President. “In addition to some of the great items we’ve offered in the past, this year, we’re looking for new and unique ideas such as kids’ themed birthday parties, specialized dinners, and other unique items and experiences you might not be able to find in a store.”

Mark your calendars so you won’t forget to enjoy the excitement of this year’s annual Rotary Auction on TV Cogeco, November 14th and 15th.
