Tri-County Health Care Holding Virtual Auxillary Auction Nov. 30th


WADENA, Minn.– Tri-County Health Care will host their Auxiliary Auction virtually in 2021 like the year before due to COVID-19 and space restrictions. Website bidding will begin on Nov. 26. Final bids need to be placed by 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 30.

During the auction, community members bid on baskets filled with holiday holiday themed items prepared by area businesses, community organizations, and TCHC departments. All funds go to make an impact for patients and staff. Those with Tri-County Health Care say the deadline for submitting a basket for the fundraiser is Nov. 24. Baskets can be dropped off at the information desk in the Wadena Clinic.

“Our amazing Auxiliary members work hard to put on this fund night of fundraising! We can’t be in person this year but that isn’t going to stop us from having an incredible auction,” said Foundation Executive Director Ryan Damlo.

A livestream showcase of the auction items will take place on Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. Participants will also be able to purchase raffle tickets to enter them in a drawing for a prize basket. The value of the prize basket range from $100-300. The auction will also feature a wine pull where participants can purchase a random bottle of wine for $10. The randomly selected wine bottle can have a value from $3-18.

The Holiday Auxiliary Auction is a free event. Participants will be able to view the baskets and watch the live showcase at no cost.
