‘Quarter Mania’ is this Sunday at the Lodge


Adults and children 10 years and older are invited to participate in Quarter Mania this Sunday, July 19, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Lodge. Ticket-holders are advised to bring lots of quarters!

Everyone must have a ticket to sit and bid. Only 100 bidder paddles and 100 chairs will be available. Spectators may come, shop and watch, but the chairs are paid for by the bidders when they get their paddle.

Upon check-in, each guest with a pre-sale ticket ($10) will receive a guest packet that includes an event program with the listings of vendors, auction items, raffle items, silent auction items, one bidder paddle and three raffle tickets. If any packets are available the day of the event, they will cost $15.

There will be two rounds:

Round 1 is the 3-Quarters Round (Estimated retail value $50 or higher).

Round 2 is the 2-Quarters Round (Estimated retail value $30 or higher).

Bidders interested in the opportunity to win a specific basket/item must deposit their quarters into a collection jar on the tables. Then they raise their bidding paddle in the air for that item. A random number will be drawn from those bidding, and the guest holding up that chosen number wins the basket/item for only two or three quarters.

Guests can increase their chance of winning by purchasing an additional paddle for $5 (limit three per person). If more than one paddle is used per round, guests must deposit quarters for each paddle used.

Before the bidding begins and between the two rounds, there will be time for shopping in the vendor area.. The vendors will have specials going on this day. The proceeds from this event will benefit the philanthropic work done by the Family Matters Club throughout the year. To learn more, visit the “Canyon Lake Family Matters Club” page on Facebook.
