Come Play Quarter Mania tomorrow at the Lodge


Residents and guests are invited to the Family Matters Club Quarter Mania “fun-raiser” tomorrow, Saturday, November 5, at 11 a.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the Lodge. All attendees must be ten years old or older and have their own tickets

VIP bidder paddles cost $35 and includes entry to win every item in the auction. General Admission bidder paddles cost $15. Additional paddles cost $5 each

Upon check-in, each guest with a pre-sale ticket will receive a bidder paddle, $5 snack bar voucher and a goody bag that includes an event program with the listings of vendors and auction, raffle and silent auction items. General admission ticket-holders need to bring quarters for bidding on items.

Pre-sale VIP tickets include everything listed above plus a VIP goody bad and unlimited snack bar items. Pre-sale VIP ticket-holders do not need to bring quarters. All rounds of bidding are included with pre-sale VIP tickets

There will be two bidding rounds. Round one will cost bidders three quarters per bid for a chance to win items valued at $50 or higher. Round two will cost bidders two quarters per bid for a chance to win items valued at $30 or higher.

Bidders interested in the opportunity to win a specific item must then deposit their quarters into a collection jar on the tables, then raise their bidder paddle in the air. A random number will be drawn from those bidding. The guest holding up the chosen number wins the item. Guests can increase their chance of winning by purchasing additional bidder paddles for $5. There is a three paddle limit per person. If more than one paddle is used per round, guest must deposit quarters for each paddle used.

Before the bidding begins, and between the two bidding rounds, guest will have an opportunity to shop at the vendor tables. Vendors will offer specials throughout the event.

Quarter Mania serves as a support to operate the club by using funds raised at this event to assist in costs to provide low or no costs events in the community. The November fundraiser focuses on the needs of helping a family in need at the holidays and to accommodate requests children make in a letter to Santa.
