Behind the Scenes at the 2019 Rotary Auction


It’s that time of year again! The Rotary Auction and Rummage Sale is on July 6th from 8am to 2pm at Woodward Middle School. Listen here to learn more about what it takes to put on this incredible event.

In this podcast BCB host Christina Hulet sits down with Rotarians Susie Burdick and Deb Rudnick to talk about this long-standing island tradition. We learn about how funds raised during the auction support our community, including Rotary’s efforts to expand partnerships with local nonprofits. We also hear about how Rotary’s Green Team is working to protect our environment.

Plus, get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to pull off an event that draws thousands of shoppers each year. What’s the most memorable item that’s ever been dropped off? The largest? When is the most money raised? What’s the farthest someone’s travelled to come to the auction? Listen and find out.
