There are hundreds of items you can bid on in all price ranges. Come on out and support the youth in our county.
Tickets are only $20.00 a person. While you can get a ticket at the door, it is best to contact a 4-H member or the 4-H Office (209) 385-7418 before hand to arrange your tickets.
Special: for our 100 year of 4-H in Merced County we will have a small display and will be offering our newly completed book of 4--H stories and photos. This book has been compiled with stories collected over the year and is hot off the press this week. The book sells for $25.00, but during the 4-H Dinner Auction you can get your copy for only $20.00. Pick up a couple and review during dinner! This is a great offer you won't want to miss.
Monies raised this evening will be used for local Merced County 4-H programs. This includes member and volunteer events, conferences, activities like presentation and public speaking, and recognition and incentives.
Again thanks for your support for the positive development of youth in our county.
The Auctions will include various gift packs, merchant items, homemade crafts, items made by 4-H members and more . . . Please enjoy viewing and socializing around all of the wonderful items donated for this auction.
We hope you will find some items that you would like to take home! There are items for all price ranges. In addition to some larger Theme Baskets, you will find items like quilts, two sailing trips, Christmas decorations, tools and so much more!
Enjoy some cheese, crackers, chips and salsa as you view the auction items and visit with friends. 4-H members will coming around with trays of goodies. Other members will be coming around to sell tickets for soft drinks and bottle water.
Dinner will be served by our 4-H Members so sit back and relax. There will be plenty of great food so don’t worry. The serving may start before all the silent auction tables close, but you can and are welcome to still bid on items during serving.
The Desserts are on display at special tables, so check out all the wonderful goodies and desserts. This year the desserts will all be on a blind silent auction. You can make a sealed bid on the items you want and the highest bid will be announced with the winner. If you don't win right away, you can still put in a bid for the other desserts. All desserts can be taken home or shared at your table. 4-H will provide you with extra plates and silverware at the dinner tables.
The silent auction items are displayed on tables. Announcements will be made as to the closing of the silent auction tables. A few tables will close at different times. Remember to check back often to add your winning bid!
Following the desserts we will have the Live Auction. Any late items will be announced at the auction stand. You may view the live auction items on the front stage. Look for trips, ball game tickets, dinner and a Play, some lamb and pork for your freezer, and more! Printouts of the live auction items will be available on the dinner tables or ask the computer entry people for a copy.
After you have exhausted all your bidding on the silent, dessert, and live items you can check out at the bank for your bill and receipt. They will total up all the goodies you have won and after paying you can take your receipt to the silent auction area to collect your loot! New this year in 2017 we will be able to accept standard credit cards using Square. There will be an added processing fee to use credit cards, see the Bank for details.
A two night stay in Bass Lake! The door prize is an excellent closing to a fun evening. Drawing is from the collected dinner tickets so make sure that you have added your name to the back of your ticket and stick around as you must be present to win!
