LACONIA – The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction will hold information sessions for organizations interested in applying for funds from this year’s Auction. The hour-long sessions will be held at Leavitt Park at 338 Elm Street in Laconia on Tuesday, October 30 at 5pm and Wednesday, October 31 at 8am.
If your organization has tax-exempt status under Section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code and/or public agency status; a primary base of operations in the Greater Lakes Region; and a proven history of providing value to the children of the local community; we want to hear from you.
Each organization’s funding request will be considered in four different categories: A, B, C, and D based on its need. Applications for needs that fit the Category A and urgent items classification, will be accepted until November 9. Applications for all other categories will be accepted until December 14.
The application has changed from 2016, so if you are an organization that has applied before, you may want to attend an information session and/or review the new application. Applications will be available at the information sessions as well as on the Children’s Auction website at www.childrensauction.com.
Tune in December 4-8 on 104.9 the Hawk, 101.5 WEEI, Atlantic Broadband Channel 12 and Lakes Region Public Access Channel 25, or online at ChildrensAuction.com. The Auction will broadcast live from the Belknap Mall in Laconia.
