Online bids open for Metchosin service auction

The big finale of the month-long event is the live auction March 28 at the Metchosin Community House.

Put down your paddle and start tapping keys if you want to bid in the Metchosin Services Auction.

The Metchosin Community Association is hosting its annal auction this month.

The online bidding starts March 1 and will run until March 26. The big finale of the month-long event is the live auction March 28 at the Metchosin Community House.

There are 50 service providers entered in the auction offering services including roofing, chicken coop design and home decluttering.

The online bids are then used as the starting bids for the live auction. The online portion of the auction has been the most popular way of bidding and many online bidders have acquired the services they’ve bid on.

“The purpose of the services auction is to raise awareness and to support business providing services in the community and in the region,” said Ron Tenove, chair of the auction.

Even though the auction is hosted by the Metchosin Community Association, the service providers are from across the West Shore and the auction is open to anyone within Greater Victoria.

The businesses participating in the auction have donated their services and all the money raised will go towards the Metchosin Community Association.

The money is used to cover operating costs for the Metchosin Community House and to subsidize programs.

“We’ve run out of the grant money to keep the parents and tots program going,” said Betty Hildreth, MCA board member, adding some of the funds generated will be used to help keep the long-time program running.

Last year the auction generated $4,000 and the association is hoping to bring in the same amount this year.
