The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction Story, Nov. 19
Join us as Warren Bailey shares the story and the successes of the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, Monday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. This free event is open to the public.
In 1982, WLNH radio host Bailey, responding to the needs of Lakes Region Children and their families, created a two-day fundraising broadcast from the WLNH van in front of the Laconia YMCA. They raised $2,100 and collected a number of items for donation to the “Citizen Santa Fund.”
Over the next 15 years, WLNH worked tirelessly to grow this event into a multi-day radio auction. Through the generosity of several different proprietors, the Auction found a home each year in storefronts throughout Downtown Laconia. Under WLNH’s direction, multitudes became involved in this event and the “Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction” took on a life of its own.Posted in: Events, News
