United Way set to launch 11th Annual Live United Online Auction today


TAYLOR COUNTY—What do an overnight stay at Snowshoe Resort, a custom artisan bench, and an autographed football by WVU Coach Neal Brown all have in common? Very simply they are all up for bids in the Tygart Valley United Way’s 11th Annual Live United Online Auction which begins on Saturday.

The auction, which lasts for one full week, takes place Saturday, November 6th through Saturday, November 13th. The auction is made possible thanks to generous donors who are making things and experiences attainable by the highest bidder come the end of the week.

The fun begins at 9am. In between, the United Way team is hopeful there will be lots of spirited bidding by fans eager of locking in the winning price on any of those gifts, experiences and more. Their goal is to eclipse the $20,000 mark, so bid early, bid often, and fight for your right to party.

An array of items and experiential offerings have been donated by community businesses and individuals, and 100-percent of the proceeds will benefit Tygart Valley United Way. The auction, which was a tradition in Randolph County for over ten years has now been expanded to a region-wide event. 

Auction items include a signed basketball from WVU Coach Bob Huggins, living room furniture set, last will and testament package, deep freezer, local artisan items, local photography, and so much more. There will be over 200 items in the auction.

Angela Daniels is the Regional Engagement Director with United Way. She’s thankful in this season of giving, saying, “This online auction would not be possible without the generosity and support from so many incredible businesses and people around our community.” She adds, “When we say there is something for everyone, we mean there is something for everyone. It’s a great opportunity to score great deals on some cool items.”
