CARA Annual Live Auction
The Capital Area Recreation Association (CARA) is a volunteer sports complex that covers nearly eighty acres that is maintained and operated by a small group of dedicated volunteers with support from locally committed businesses. A portion of our funding for equipment, capital improvements, maintenance and youth registration scholarships are raised through support of local businesses and food concessions. The balance is raised through an annual charity golf tournament and a "Sport Fields for kids" Live Auction. In June of 2022, we held our first live annual auction and raised over $40,000.
Our mission is simple, and our existence is unique. Simple because our goal is to provide safe green space for our area youth so they may develop lifelong skills and good character. Unique because we are not city owned and operated but work hand and hand with the city of Augusta to provide a premier complex for our area youth.
