Easton Lions Club – Auction 2020 for the Easton Lions Club
Auction Ends: Mar 7, 2020 11:45 PM EST

After 34 years the Easton Lions Auction has been redesigned into an Online Only event that will run in conjunction with our new "Celebration of Easton" Dinner on Saturday night, March 7, 2020, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, doors open at 5:30 for appetizers and item preview.  Please be in your seats by 6:30 when the TV production starts.

It’s one big Event! Bidding is live through the celebration event on March 7th.  Even during the televised event, ALL bidding is online at Bidding for Good!  No more phones. No more squinting at TV boards, or listening to presenters announce the bids.

Bid Now!

Easton Lions Club will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization - many of whom will be present at the dinner Celebration on March 7th. All groups are listed in the Dinner details below.

Please be generous in your donations as well as your bids to support these great causes.  If you do not see any items of interest, we also accept donations to the Lions Club of Easton Foundation.  Just click the donate now button.  We can only support Easton with your help & support.

Most items will be ready for viewing before bidding begins.  Please take note, we may have late breaking items added during the week.  So be sure to check back on Friday for anything new that you may have missed on the 29th.

All items will be sold on March 7th.  You do not need to be present at the dinner to win!  Items generally close out on the following schedule, but items may be extended:

  1. 7:00 pm closing $ 50 and under
  2. 7:30 pm closing $ 51 to  $100
  3. 8:00 pm closing $101 to $300
  4. 8:30 pm closing $301 to priceless

What is a Bid Extension:

Extensions happen when hot items have bid activity in the last 5 minutes before close.  If a bid is received during the closing minutes of an item's auction the close time will be extended by 5 minutes.  This ensures no bidder is cut out by a last second sniper  Extensions will continue until all bidders are satisfied and will automatically close when there is a 5 minute extension period without a new bid.

When you see a desirable item, bid here at Bidding for Good.  Do not be outbid.  Set your high bid and let Bidding for Good increment it as new bids come in. Simple, efficient and fun.
