Each year, on the first Saturday in October at the North Kawartha Community Centre, the North Kawartha Food Bank hosts a dinner, followed by a “Loonie Auction”. The auction features all manner of items which you “bid” on, by purchasing tickets for a dollar a piece. The ticket that is drawn “wins” the item. You can purchase more than one ticket for any item, but it is possible to get something of considerable value for just a Loonie! The evening is a fundraiser for the North Kawartha Food Bank. Lots of fun, great items, and a worthy cause.
