35th Annual Goods & Services Auction – Online for 2021!

Well…Spring is on its way and it time for our 35th Annual Bethany Lions Goods & Services Auction – Online for 2021! A new twist on an old favorite in our community! Save the date of March 31st – April 9th which is the online auction bidding period. You can bid from your home, work, car, cell phone, laptop and/or desktop 24 hours a day 7 days a week – We’re making it easy peasy! Pickup will be on Sunday, April 11th and will be following COVID safety protocols for safe pickup.

We’ll have a wide variety of goods and our ever popular services. If you’d like to donate goods or a service(s), please contact Lion Janet Brunwin at (203) 393-0598 or email: brunwin@sbcglobal.net

Below is a donation chart of ideas for possible goods donations! If you have a service that you’d like to donate, let Lion Janet know.

Both the online auction house and the Bethany Lions will be doing extensive publicity for the event and your service will have wide exposure to the Greater New Haven area and beyond (you just have to tell us if your donated service is just for the BOW area – but you’ll still get the great exposure)!

Mark those calendars, keep your eye out on Facebook and our website for when we liven the link to start bidding on March 31st! We can’t wait!

Happy Thanksgiving!
