Online auction supports cancer center

The Cancer Community Center is hosting its 13th annual online auction until Wednesday, March 23. The auction is a fundraiser in support of the programs and services the center provides for Mainers who have been touched by cancer.

With more than 400 items, this year’s online auction is expected to raise $40,000 for the center.

“All of the programs and services we offer are provided at no charge to the people who attend. However, there is a cost associated with providing those services and we need to raise our entire operating budget each year. We are grateful to the many businesses who donate items and the individuals who bid on those items to make the auction a success,” said Eileen Brown, development director at Cancer Community Center.

The Cancer Community Center online auction has something for everyone and every budget. Sports fans will find exclusive ticket offers as well as autographed jerseys and sports equipment. Travelers can get deals on vacation packages. There are lots of gift certificates to Maine businesses including restaurants, coffee shops and dozens of local stores.
