Girls Inc. to hold 2nd Auction for Action

Starting, Tuesday, April 13 and ending Saturday, April 17, people can bid on fun family experiences, outdoor and gardening packages, overnight stays, local art, food lovers’ packages and so much more from anywhere one uses their smart device.

Register to bid online through the link on Girls Inc.’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook page and website.

“There’s no need to worry about credit card information, it is securely stored in our partner’s Greater Giving online software and you will only be charged if you win something,” said Community Development Manager Lauren Stipes. “Even then, you have at least until Monday morning April 19 to let us know if you’d like to pay another way.

“We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all the vendors and community members who have donated items for this year’s auction,” Stipes continued. “Thanks to you and the folks who participate in the auction, Morristown girls will have access to an expanded Girls Inc. Summer Day Camp where they can explore new passions and career opportunities through our hands-on, educational and recreational programs.” Girls Inc. would also like to thank the Citizen Tribune and WCRK/WMTN radio for partnering with us as media sponsors for this event.

The virtual auction opens Tuesday morning and runs through midnight Saturday, April 17.

“We hope to see you there, from wherever you may be bidding from. And who knows, maybe we’ll get in a bidding war - all in good fun and for a good cause,” said Stipes.

Those having questions about the auction or Girls Inc. programming, should call Stipes at 423-581-4430.
