The 27th annual Rotary TV Auction on TVCOGECO is being hailed as a great success.
Event co-chair Alison Mahon says pledges from the 8-hour live television broadcast on Sunday totaled $40,890.
She says the money raised will go towards a variety of local projects including Bluewater Health, the Inn of the Good Shepherd, Pathways Children’s Centre, and the Dow Centre for Youth.
"We really appreciate the tremendous support of all the businesses and organizations who donate to the auction… as well as the people who bid on the items," said Mahon.
"There generosity enables us to continue to give to the community."
