COMMUNITY FIRST: Platters auctioned to benefit Eau Claire non-profit

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An Eau Claire company auctioned off merchandise to help a non-profit organization.

Glass Doctor put the Bella Cast Venetian glass platters up for auction, and says it will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Wisconsin. The platters were listed on eBay, and retail for $249.99. Both Glass Doctor and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Wisconsin promoted the auction on social media pages.

A spokeswoman from Big Brothers Big Sisters says the group hasn't found out what the auctions raised yet, but that the money will get lumped in with the total for the group's Bowl for Kids Sake events. She says she found out about the auction as it was happening, and that it's kind of cool when people find different ways of raising funds for the organization.
