The Bids for Kids auction is open until Sunday
QUINCY (WGEM) – Starting Thursday, you can participate in an online auction while simultaneously helping children in Adams County.
Bids for Kids, the annual Quincy Noon Kiwanis fundraiser, kicked off at noon Thursday and will run until 7 p.m. on April 3.
The auction features hundreds of items ranging from tools and sports memorabilia to decorations and lotions.
Quincy Noon Kiwanis Club member Mike Jenkins said all proceeds go to help children in the Adams County area.
“This is Quincy Noon Kiwanis’ biggest fundraiser of the year. He’s everyone’s grandfather. It’s what allows us to make as much money as possible that will then go to children’s service agencies and organizations, basically organizations that help children’s causes,” Jenkins said.
Jenkins said last year the fundraiser raised about $40,000 and they hope to raise even more this time around.
“We set the bar really high last year, and we certainly hope to top what we did last year and the great thing about this auction is that 100% of everything that comes in comes right back. to help serve those agencies and organizations that help children,” Jenkins said.
Jenkins said the money went to Chaddock, Transitions, Big Brothers and Sisters and more.
He said he was grateful to all the businesses and everyone in the Quincy area for donating to this charitable cause over the years.
Jenkins said the auction is continuing this year in an online format so people everywhere can participate and not have to travel to Quincy. It also allows the auction to last longer.
