Bids 2Help Kids Silent Auction and DinnerBids 2Help Kids is a silent auction and dinner to raise funds to support charities geared towards children. Since taking over the charity in 2009, the Outreach Committee has focused on spreading the funds between local and foreign projects. Normally one of the mission teams is supported to help fund VBS or construction projects for children such as orphanages for street boys or repairs to pre-schools in Peru and Tanzania, respectively. Selections of charities are chosen every year and the Outreach Committee decides which local charity will be included. Since taking over, the Outreach committee has helped to fund the third floor of the spirit center which is our new youth area at Mauldin United Methodist, Frazee Dream Center and Generations Group Home as our local charities.
The dinner is cooked in house and served at the tables. We have volunteers to serve as wait staff keeping drinks filled and bringing out desserts. The auction items are spread throughout the Spirit Center for guest to evaluate and bid on throughout the night. In 2011 we had 140 items up for auction.
If you are interested in donating items, coming to this year’s dinner (normally in October/November depending on college football schedules) or just keeping up to date on the event planning please sign up for our email newsletter under local and foreign missions or contact the Outreach Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
