Date set for Auction: March 5, 2017, Stonehill College: The Easton Lions Club's 31st Annual Televised Charity Auction will happen this year on March 5th at Stonehill College in the Pettit Atrium! 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.
Bourne Auto has generously donated a 2007 Ford Taurus SE, (VIN #1FAFP53U47A156456), with 103,000 miles as our premier item at this year's auction. The Taurus SE comes with standard options, automatic steering with center shifter and alloy wheels. Bourne also includes a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty on the vehicle. The NADA clean retail value is $4,825. Come check out the Taurus at our annual Holiday Festival on the weekend of December 3 and 4. More photos of the 2007 Ford Taurus are on our Facebook EastonLions page in the Auction 2017 Car photo album.

Bid Line #508-230-7071
- 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.
