 In Client Press Releases

LACONIA —The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, running this year from Tuesday, Dec. 5 through Friday, Dec. 8, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Belknap Marketplace, recently announced that starting at 8 a.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 24 through Tuesday, Dec. 5, any registered auction bidder can go online to and bid early on high-value items. Even place a max bid if you choose on any and all items and receive a text if you are outbid. 

New items are being added every day. Early auction bidding on items with a retail value of $300 and up is open to everyone who creates an online account at All items will close during the auction.

The auction is still looking for items of any value for this year’s event. While many items have been received at this time, there is a need for thousands of items to raise enough money to meet the needs of the community.  

Auction leaders will collect new, unused, unwrapped items right up to the week of the auction. Gift cards, electronics, tools, toys, sporting goods and household items all bring the highest bids. Go to our website at for a list of donation drop-off sites throughout the Lakes Region. 

The 42nd Annual Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction is presented by Hannaford Supermarkets. The auction airs daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Friday, Dec. 8, auction volunteers will come together to announce the total funds raised for children and families in need. 

Want to donate an item valued at $300 or up, drop it off before Nov. 15, and it will be included in the new, online pre-bidding.
