There are only a few weeks left to take advantage of the season and organize a fun, summer-themed fundraiser. Need some inspiration? Woodstock, New York recently held its 83rd Library Fair, a great summer fundraiser where residents can enjoy events like tug of war, fairy parades, dance parties, and children’s all-time favorite, face painting. According to an article on Woodstock Times, there was something new this year: a quilt and apron auctioning event that fairgoers were able to bid for through eBay.
All proceeds from the Fair went to the Woodstock Library, which has been an integral part of the community since 1931. We at eBay Giving Works are very glad to have played a role in preserving this piece of local history. As Woodstock has demonstrated, hosting a charity auction is only one of many ways to raise funds for your community.
