2019 Bainbridge Island Rotary Auction & Sale is a huge success

The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island recently announced the results of the 59th annual Auction & Rummage sale, again held at Woodward Middle School on July 6.

More than $606,000 was raised during the six-hour sale, officials said.

Tabulated in other ways, the event also saw some impressive numbers.

More than 1,500 volunteers spent countless hours, officials said, throughout a period of nine days taking in, organizing and selling donations in 36 distinct departments.

More than 4,000 vehicles delivered more than 150,000 items this year. And about 6,000 attendees were at the auction itself.
