The Easton Lions Club will be conducting our 31st Annual Televised Charity Auction in the first quarter of 2017! We’re making plans now for our primary fund raiser of the year, and ask that you please help us help others by donating a product or service. The Easton Lions not only support local charities and youth and community groups, but also seek to fulfill the challenge issued many years ago by Helen Keller: “To be the knights against darkness”. We support research to prevent blindness and efforts to improve the standard of living of sight impaired people around the world.
- Fill out your donation form electronically, click here to open form.
- All donated items will be available to be viewed by the public on our Auction Website, including both a picture of the item (or of your business) and a description of the item. The sooner a donation is made, the sooner it is available for viewing on the Auction Website. Below is a list of items that will be listed in more details soon.
- We send out email blasts to let the public know about the items available for viewing on the Auction Website.
- The items will be auctioned off on Easton’s Community Access Television, on Comcast (Ch. 9) and Verizon (Ch. 22) on a date to be announced by September 2016.
- Donations with a retail value of less than $100 may get somewhat less exposure during the auction.
Item list as of July 23, 2016.
Links to websites, pictures and additional information coming soon. We are working hard to update our 2017 Charity Auction website this summer. Please check back in September for more details.

- All items are auctioned off only at the live televised auction. No items are auctioned off online.
- Some items have a reserve/minimum bid amount. Pre-bids and live auction bids need to be no less than the reserve/minimum bid amount.
- The www.EastonLionsAuction.org website and the preview webpages do not reflect pre-bidding / bidding activity. The live televised auction is the only place the current high bid is updated.
- Bid must meet minimum bid increment for that board.
- When we "close" the auction board during the final round sell off for that board, no more bids can be received for the items on that board. Don't wait and don't be late!
- We do our best to reflect and update the current high bid on the auction boards you see on TV, but it is possible that a higher winning bid has been properly received (before the board has been closed) but not yet updated on the board that you see on TV during the sell off.
- You are only the winning bidder if you receive the confirmation call on the day of the auction.
Want to make sure that you win that item and help this charity auction raise much needed funds?
Bid early. Bid often. Bid high. Really bump up that bid and blow them out of the water ! We love overbids!!
Winning Bidders may pick-up items from 2-9pm Sunday March 13th at Oliver Ames High School Cafeteria, 100 Lothrup St., North Easton, MA. During confirmation call pay by credit/debit card and have certificates/gift cards mailed to you for a one-time $3 service charge.
We hope that you will help us help others by donating a product, service, or experience opportunity for the auction, as 100% of the proceeds go to charities and community service groups.
