2019 Service Auction Mission

Date: March 23, 2019
Doors open 6:00 PM

For the past 37 years, the HWMC Service Auction has raised funds to support many significant projects with our community.  The Service Auction is a fundraising event where goods and personal and professional services donated by community merchants, artists, residents and members are auctioned.  The event attracts over 800 attendees who spend the evening bidding on items, sampling the fine food and drink, and socializing with their friends and neighbors.  It is truly an incredibly fun evening for all who attend.  The 2019 HWMC Service Auction will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 in the Gillham Recreation Center in Huntington Woods.  The 2019 Auction will raise funds to allow for the addition of multiple shade structures within Burton Community Park

Any parent, grandparent, or caregiver who has spent summer days with kids in the heat at the Burton Park Playground can appreciate the need for shade, for the kids and chaperones alike.  This project will fund shade sails, mature shade trees and other shade elements at the premier playground in the center of Huntington Woods, Burton Community Park. The shade elements will allow the school children and playground monitors to be able to have outdoor activity on days when the playground temperatures had previously kept kids inside

With the shade sails in place over the main play structure, playtime can be extended for the kids.  The well-placed mature shade trees and other shade structures within the park will allow caregivers shade in locations with the best sightlines to keep an eye on the little ones.  On January 22, 2019, our City Council unanimously approved a resolution to support the addition of shade elements at Burton Community Park.

This project is a significant undertaking that is not in the budget for the school or the City.  The Huntington Woods Men’s Club is proud to be the funding sponsor to this necessary community project and is looking forward to Auction Night 2019 to help provide the financial resources to fund the project.  With your help, the 2019 Service Auction will make this project become a reality and fund many additional smaller community projects.  The more proceeds earned at the auction, the more desired shade elements can be installed in the park.  So, please come help the HWMC raise funds to make Burton Park as cool as it can be.
