Auction Items Needed to Benefit Local Food Pantries

MOULTONBOROUGH — Silent and live auctions will be held at the Moultonborough Lions Club on Saturday, June 1, to benefit the Lakes Region Food Pantry and the Moultonborough United Methodist Church Food
Pantry. Every dollar taken in will be used to purchase food items to keep the food pantry shelves,
refrigerators and freezers stocked.
Local residents and businesses can support this extremely important effort by donating items to be auctioned such as gift certificates, new merchandise, handmade crafts or art work, used furniture or household items in very good condition, antiques, and any other items that are valuable enough to be included in a silent or live auction.
There will not be a flea market associated with the auctions. In addition, we cannot accept used
mattresses, appliances (small or large), computer or stereo equipment, exercise equipment,
televisions, or television entertainment centers.
The live auction will begin at 6 p.m. sharp. The doors will be opened at 4:30 p.m. for preview
and food will be available. More than 250 items will be auctioned in the balloon, silent and live
Any businesses or individuals who have one or more items they are willing to donate are asked to call Kate and Mike Lancor (476-8409) or Amy Norton (986-0357). Arrangements can be made to pick up donated items in advance.
This year's Annual Food Pantries Auction is the seventh auction being conducted by HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) Auctions. HOPE Auctions was formed for the sole purpose of raising funds for charity organizations.
