2017 was a record setting year. Join us to make 2018 equally as good. Then see what we do with the money raised.

2018 Auction & Rummage Sale is almost here

The 58th Annual Auction & Rummage Sale is right around the corner.  The Rotary Club is gearing up for another good year so we can generate funds that, working with the community, we can put to good use within our Local and International Communities.  Come join us – have some fun – and get some good bargains.  Explore this website to learn more details about this event, the schedule and the bargains that are available on June 30.

 

The 2017 Auction & Rummage Sale was a HUGE – RECORD SETTING success, with revenues of over $585,000.

Thank you Bainbridge and the Puget Sound community for your fantastic support: to the 2017 Auction attendees who opened your billfolds to make purchases; to those who generously donated the items we sold; and to the over 1,500 Auction volunteers (some from as far away as Australia) who, year after year, spend countless hours helping us take in, organize, and sell those donations.  Our success would not be possible without EVERYONE’S support.

The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island has been putting money from the 2017 Auction & Rummage Sale to good use within our community and beyond through:

Community Grants to local nonprofit organizations
Large community projects
International humanitarian projects
Community Service and Career/Technical Scholarships
Other causes
