About Our Auction
In this time of uncertainty, when most in-person fundraising events have been canceled, UWNEMN has decided to create small, online auctions to help make up for funds lost due to the cancellation of Flavor of the North 2020.
All proceeds from this auction will benefit the Buddy Backpack program, which continues to provide food-insecure children from across our service territory with nutritious, nonperishable meal kits on weekends.
Funding for Buddy Backpacks is more important than ever before due to the pandemic. We saw an increase in enrollment at the end of the school year and are projecting an increase in need in the fall. We have experienced funding loss for Buddy Backpacks and other UWNEMN programs due to event cancellation.
If you miss out on the item you are bidding on, please consider making a donation to the Buddy Backpack program by clicking the Donate button!
