About Our Auction

Thank you for visiting our very first online auction fundraiser for Connections Area Agency on Aging! We typically hold a silent auction at our annual charity golf tournament, but the delta strain of the pandemic has provided the opportunity for us to reach even more of our friends and supporters this year by holding the auction online and keeping our supporters safe.

Our golf event is held in memory of our "Local Hero", Gary Frederiksen. Gary was a longtime supporter, board member and golfer, and boy did he love this event. We are proud to hold it in his honor each year.

We've set some high goals for the total raised from our golf event, "Salute to Local Heroes" and the auction, but we have a variety of items and price points so that everyone can join in on the fun. Please view our sponsor page, and thank these wonderful partners and supporters of aging service when you visit their businesses!

Please check out the fabulous packages available and enjoy 10 days of competitive bidding until we close this online auction at 6pm on Friday, September 10th.

As with our golf tournament, proceeds will be used to help aging Iowans affected by the pandemic - whether they're food insecure; have lost their job due to Covid; need rent or utility assistance; or have been a victim of abuse or frauds and scams. Your participation will help us help these friends and neighbors.
