WHAT | Bainbridge Island Rotary Online Auction & Rummage Sale

WHEN | Monday August 24, 6:00 am through Sunday August 30, 5:00 pm

This August, for the first time in its 60-year history, the Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale is being held online. To protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, they opted for this new arrangement. And while a lot of things are different this year, one thing remains the same: All proceeds from the Auction & Rummage Sale are invested in our community, local and beyond. This year, donating and buying items happens from the comfort of your home. The only personal interaction is between donor and buyer for item pickup, at an agreed upon time and place. You can eliminate contact by arranging for pickup at the donor’s porch or driveway and items will stay with donors until purchased.
