The Champaign Family YMCA’s annual Invest in Youth Silent Auction has gone virtual. The online auction began November 27 and continues until December 7 at 6 p.m. The public can view and bid on items that include gift baskets, electronics, toys, games and handmade goods.
Auction items are on display in the Y lobby and can be viewed on the auction website: champaignfamilyymca.org/bids. To place a bid, visit the website, find your item, and enter your name, phone number and bid amount. When the auction concludes, winners may pick up their items at the Y or request the items be shipped.
Participants can buy holiday gifts and support the Y at the same time. Every dollar raised goes directly toward providing YMCA memberships to families and youths in the community. Through such generosity, the Y provides financial assistance to over 300 Champaign County residents each year.
The Y expressed appreciation to the individuals, organizations and businesses that donated to this year’s Invest in Youth Silent Auction.
