Fall 2021 Auction Dates are set: October 18-29 weekdays on WRJB 95.5 FM. Listen to bid and watch on our Facebook page - United Way Radio Auction of Benton County
Recap of 20-21 Radio Auctions:
Covid-19 affected everyone in 2020-21. United Way of Benton County had to make several changes in order to have our largest fundraiser of the Campaign year. We held the event with only the volunteers being allowed to enter. The auction was shown on Facebook live, aired on our local radio station and bids were taken by phone. Our partner agencies, churches, businesses, organizations and individuals donated items to be auctioned, provided carry-out lunches daily for purchase and became sponsors for this event. We held two (2-week) auctions during the campaign year. A fall auction in October 2020 and a spring auction in March 2021. In 2020-21, the auctions raised over $94,000 which will be used to supplement funding for our 17 local partner agencies and Community Impact projects. It takes great effort to coordinate the auction but our entire community supports our efforts and we have a lot of fun and fellowship while raising funds for those in need. We are looking forward to our 21-22 auctions and hope to invite everyone inside to bid, eat, or just have a little fun with us.
