THE 51ST Rotary Auction sold more items online than by phone for the first time this year.

THE 51ST Rotary Auction sold more items online than by phone for the first time this year.

“It worked out well,” said Brian Downie, chair of the Rotary Club of Terrace.

In only the second year of online bidding, the number of internet bids was 3,149 plus 1,268 internet pre-bids compared to 611 phone bids, he said.

The 442 items auctioned off raised $42,922, or 66.59 per cent of the total item value of $64,461.

Add in the cash donations and the total is $45,572 – last year’s total was $40,752 or 65.5 per cent of the total item value of $62,208. “It all boils down to the support from businesses and other organizations,” said Downie.
