This year’s Blind Sports Charity Auction was another huge success! We’d like to extend an immense THANK YOU to Bubba Ray’s Sports Bar Too, for hosting us again this year. Thank you, to all who donated (there are too many to name with over 100 items donated). Thank you to all of the bidders and volunteers, who made this impactful event possible.
This Saturday night, don’t miss out on incredible deals and a great time!!
Every dollar raised makes it possible for blind athletes of all ages to compete locally & internationally in goalball and helps us grow impactful programs, like tandem biking and group fitness.
Just $5 at the door lets you bid live on a selection of everyday goods & services, like massages and local restaurants, as well as not so every day items, like sweet sports memorabilia and fine jewellery.
Check out the Facebook event.
