"Bids for Kids is our most unique fundraiser of the year," said Susan Putnam, President & CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Great Lakes Bay Region. "It's also one of our most important, as it provides critical support for our mentoring programs across the region."

"With so many items and experiences available, everyone is sure to find something they would enjoy," said Putnam. "From golf packages to a condo rental in Florida, we have it all covered. We also have several night on the town packages for those wishing to enjoy an evening out while staying close to home"

Bids for Kids is conducted entirely online. Those wishing to participate in the auction must visit, where they can complete a simple registration, and begin placing bids on items they select. The auction will remain open until 8:00 p.m. Monday, June 29.
