Last year, our first online-exclusive Auction generated more than 18,000 bids over the course of the event. Items on the site were viewed more than 77,000 times, and the average bidder placed 28 bids. Pat, a participant from Fitchburg, remarked, “It is always a lot of fun for a good cause!”

Join us daily for the “Deal of Day” – limited-time offers of favorite items. Registered bidders will receive an email with these offers throughout the week. There is a limited supply of “Deal of Day” items, so be ready to bid!

New this year – the “Nightly Nine”! Each night, an item valued at $75 or higher will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Come back nightly to win!

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items up for bid this year!
