Want to help a good cause while possibly scoring an experience or a gift for yourself?
Our 2022 No Show Gala auction will be hosted on 32auctions.com at the link below or use the QR code below:
The auction will open on Wednesday, May 18 with a Facebook Live event at 5:30 PM and close with another live event on Wednesday, June 1 at 5:30 PM. Bids will be accepted through the Auction website, via e-mail with your name, address and phone number to email@example.com or by phone to (989) 227-1771, ext 3.
Featured auction items include a 10-foot sit-on kayak from KL Outdoors of Muskegon and life jackets from Bee's Sports valued at $600, a “Life Up North” package that includes a night’s stay in a Northern Michigan bed and breakfast and a VIP tasting at L. Mawby Vineyards in Suttons Bay, and a 5 day, 4 night stay at Aruba Marriott Resort.
The auction is being held in conjunction with the “2022 No-Show Gala,” a virtual event where CGHFH supporters will be encouraged to purchase “tickets” ($35 each) or sponsor a “table” ($200) without the need to dress up or “get pretty” for a formal event.
All proceeds from the auction and the “gala” will help CGHFH pursue its core mission of providing safe, decent and affordable housing for people in need, build accessibility ramps and carry out critical home repairs designed to keep peoples in their homes longer.
