Stories of HopeProgress to bet on, from the inaugural “Bid & Benefit” online auction

Posted on: Apr 16, 2021

“Bid & Benefit” is the new online auction series launched by the Lois Hole Hospital Women’s Society. The first inaugural event ran from April 1st - 11th and raised nearly $7,000!

This week marks an important first—and definitely not a last—for the Lois Hole Hospital Women’s Society: the conclusion of the very first “Bid & Benefit” online auction.

And you can bet it was an enormous success...

We raised $6,854.00 for the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, representing 91% of our goal! 

Not bad for our first auction! The inaugural item list featured an amazing curation of goods, services and experiences from local vendors.
