This summer, JFAO held its first online charity auction to raise money for this year’s provincial charity, The Do More Ag Foundation. The auction was run by Middlesex JF member Will Johnson and his business, W.J. Auctions. Clubs were asked to donate 3 lots to be auctioned off. We had a great variety of items including baked goods, gift certificates, baskets of local products, personalized butter tarts, and customized products made by our members. The top lot was a set of customized cornhole boards. The auction opened for bidding on June 27 and closed July 8. Once the auction had closed, many members helped pick up and drop off the donations. It was a successful auction with $2330 raised. Thank you to W.J. Auctions for hosting the auction and donating their services to JFAO. Thank you to everyone who supported the auction and helped move the items around the province to where they needed to go
