About Our Auction

Update 23/10

Thank you all for your incredible support! This has been truly an awesome project to be a part of. A huge Thank You to all our donors and to the very special ladies who have worked so hard to make this a reality.

The auction will be ending at 6 PM tonight.

You will get an e-mail notification from 32 Auction if you are a winning bidder.

If you would like your item shipped please wait to be contacted, then you'll be able to pay for shipping with one payment through the auction.

If you would like the pick-up option you can go ahead and pay your invoice and we'll contact you with details on how to get your item.

As always if you have any questions get a hold of Vanessa at PorteousFundraiser@gmail.com

Please be patient, we've had more than 230 lots donated and it's going to take a little time to get everything where it's going.

Thank You all again.

Another (smaller) project is in the works and I'll be sharing that out once it's finalized.

October 4, 2020, the Porteous' suffered a devastating barn fire.

Family, Friends, and Community have come together to help the family, that has helped us all, in their time of need.

All listed items have been donated, and all proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Porteous family to help them rebuild.

Thank you to all our incredible donators!
Your generosity has lifted spirits through a dark time.
