2015 Art and Goods Auction

Join Mid Michigan Big Brothers as we “Get Away From it all in Michigan” and discover some of the great places in Michigan!

The Art and Goods Auction will be held on March 11 from 5pm-8pm at the Doherty Hotel.

Join the bidding as we offer a wonderful variety of items donated by community members and business owners both local and statewide.  Your financial support helps us Mid Michigan BBBS to provide our local programs and services to children in our communities. Mid Michigan BBBS does not receive any government funding, we depend entirely on donations, United way, grants and fundraisers like the auction.  So please come out, bring a friend, bid on an outstanding selection of items and help support the local BBBS programs.

If you are interested in donating an item or submitting a piece of artwork, please email Carol Gage at director@midmichiganbbbs.org with information regarding your piece or visit the Mid Michigan BBBS office at 104  W. Fifth St. Clare, MI 48617.

Thank you to Event Sponsor Rotary club of Clare.  Table Sponsors Kyle Industries, and Chemical Bank.
