Volunteer Rita Richard spends countless hours researching and selecting each week's items, then arranging them in the Silent Auction display case. We greatly appreciate all of the dedicated volunteers who give time to this worthy cause.
Current auction items are pictured below.
2013 Silent Auction Begins!
Get your bid numbers now, as the 2013 Heritage Day Silent Auction is underway! The first items went up for auction on Monday, October 22. Each Monday, at 8:30 a.m., a new collection of antique or collectible items will be displayed in the Wheat Ridge lobby and pictured on a web album at the bottom of this page.
If you cannot be present to bid in person, absentee bidding is available. To place an absentee bid, call 717.354.1814 before 8:00 Monday morning and leave a message containing your name, your bid number, a description of the item you want to bid on, and a maximum amount you are willing to bid for the item. You will receive a phone call if your bid wins.
Since it started nine years ago, the Silent Auction has continued to grow in both number and quality of items, as well as in the interest and enthusiasm of participants.
All proceeds from the Silent Auction and from the Heritage Day event in June are designated for the Sharing Fund, which benefits residents who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their resources. Proceeds from last year's Silent Auction alone totaled $11,159.90.
