Harwinton Congregational Church Hosted it’s First Fund Raising Auction by Tim’s Inc. Auctions on January 25, 2013
Tim’s Inc. Auctions saw a packed house on Friday, January 25 at the Harwinton Congregational Church. Online internet bidding added to the excitement of the evening with many in-house bidders vying for top bids against over the online community. An Eli Terry Pillar and Scroll Clock went to an online bidder in Canada for over $1,100. Many paintings also went to an art dealer in California for top dollar. The internet has opened another dimension to auctions and auction fund raising. Now we are able to put our items out to a wider audience and add excitement to the bidding with our in-house crowds. The internet brought over 250 additional bidders to the auction, with 15,000 page views of over 200 items available to bid online. With over 80 people in attendance, the in-house crowd didn’t walk away empty handed. Many in-house bidders went home with new treasures and “must have” items from the auction. The Harwinton Congregational Church volunteers provided a wonderful selection of light fare and beverages for the attendees and a wonderful atmosphere for the evening. The cold weather didn’t stop the community from coming out and supporting the Church and the evening didn’t disappoint! Tim Chapulis would like to thank all the hard working members of the Harwinton Congregational Church for helping to make this evening a success!
