About Our Auction
The silent auction will generate funds for the Corning Rotary Club to provide grants to local service organizations to enhance and expand their services to the community and to emphasize support for literacy, community health and safety, education and child development. Currently these include elementary school reading programs and free books to students, a Regional Spelling Bee for the national Spelling Bee, community gardens, fire safety in school and homes, and many more. International projects are supported in numerous countries around the world.
