GRAVENHURST — It’s live, it’s free and in the mail today.

The Gravenhurst Rotary Club’s popular Internet/TV Auction.

With 300 items up for grabs — worth $45,000 — the bidding has begun online.

The service club’s annual cable TV and internet fundraiser is full of a wide assortment of goods and services, gift certificates and more — all benefiting local and international charities.

Sign up to bid today; or wait until Sunday afternoon on Your Cable TV (for Cogeco subscribers) for each of the bid sections to be finalized live starting at noon, Nov. 24.

Phone operators will be live starting at 10 a.m. Sunday to take bids, which can be updated throughout the four-hour show.

Signing up to bid online is easy.

If you signed up last year, you have to do so again, this year.
