About Our Auction
Women for Healthy Rural Living's (WHRL) annual Winter Tree Festival and Auction raises funds so WHRL can support our community with a variety of health and wellness programming including Incredible Edible Milbridge and Milbridge Commons.
We hope you'll enjoy these delightful trees, wreaths, and gifts are designed and decorated by community members and local businesses.
~*~ BIDDING ~*~
Create an account to bid (click "Login" above and then "Create an Account Now".) Bidding begins at $25 for all items and increases in $10 increments.
You may place an EXACT bid - enter exactly the amount you wish to bid. The current bid will immediately move to this amount.
Or, you may enter a PROXY bid - which means that you enter the maximum amount you’d like to set. As others bid on the same item, 32Auctions will automatically bid on your behalf, up to your maximum amount. Your maximum bid will remain confidential unless you are outbid!
If you are outbid, you will receive an email notification.
~*~ PAYMENT ~*~
At the finish of the auction, we will email winners about payment - you may choose to pay by cash, check, or credit card when the item is picked up, or via credit card online.
~*~ PICKUP ~*~
Auction winners may pick up their items on Monday, December 6th from 9am to 1pm or on Thursday, December 9 from 9am to 4pm at 87 Main Street.
Non-local winners who do not have someone who can pick up their items for them may have their items shipped for an additional shipping charge (for live Christmas trees we cannot include the actual live Christmas tree – only the decorations and accompanied items) within the US only. Items descriptions will indicate if they are available for shipping.
~*~ THANKS ~*~
Many thanks to Dugald Kel and KelCo for donating the balsam wreaths for this year's auction!
About Women for Healthy Rural Living
Our mission is to advance and promote the health and well-being of the woman, her family, and her community.
Because women make the majority of the family’s health care decisions, WHRL was founded as a guide to help women and their families on a path to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness.
WHRL seeks to create an inclusive, wellness-oriented community that is active, well-nourished, connected to nature and one another. Our goal is to provide an equitable and accessible path to health.
We accomplish this through programming like Incredible Edible Milbridge, Milbridge Commons, Outdoor Women Lead, BoneBuilders, Yoga, and other health and wellness-related programs, workshops, and events.
