GRASONVILLE — Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center’s 16th annual Wet & Wild Auction will be held online from Oct. 15 to Oct. 17. Bidders will have an opportunity to preview auction items on Oct. 14 before the auction opens.
CBEC Executive Director Judy Wink said, “We all know what a great time everyone has had at our in-person Wet & Wild Auctions, but as with many other events this year that will not be possible. We are, however, very excited to bring the auction to the comfort of your home where you will be able to bid on your computer, tablet, phone, or the auction app! Watch for details on how you register for this fun online event!”
The spring shutdown of CBEC caused the cancellation of many of its revenue-generating programs. This means that CBEC needs the community’s support for its Wet & Wild Auction more than ever before. Please consider becoming a sponsor or donating an auction item by contacting Susan Vianna, auction co-chair, at email@example.com. Thank you to Priceless Industries and JW Dell Company for already becoming 2020 sponsors, Wink said.
