Bid for Kids Sake Results

Ingersoll— December 7, 2016 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area held their 12th Annual Bid for Kids Sake in Tillsonburg Nov 25, 2016. The Charity Auction & Battle of the Hors D’Oeuvres event was attended by over 220 community members, sponsors and volunteers. Their attendance is making a huge impact in the lives of families in their community.  Raising over $40,000 to benefit the families and youth in the Ingersoll, Tillsonburg & Area allows the Big Brothers Big Sisters to continue to support so many because of such a fantastic event.

“It was an amazing evening of fellowship, active bidding and community support” exclaims Deb Landon.  After reviewing feedback from participants at the event is seems “everyone, even first time guests, were really impressed with the look, feel and engagement over the night.” Live and silent auction were the keystone in the evening’s fundraising efforts, items sold at the event amount for over two thirds of the funds raised and this would not be possible without such generous donors  and it is also a great reflection of the people who came out to the event!   The remaining funds are derived from our fabulous sponsors.  This year’s sponsors really stepped up and supported their own community donating funds to the event supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Below is a list of our sponsors without which this event would not be nearly as successful!
