The Rotary Club of Walnut Grove Community Fundraising Auction.

This section will be updated as we grow nearer the 2022 date.  In the meantime, please read about our past auction:
February 13, 2021 - February 25, 2021, with a grand finale on February 25th.

An open invitation for our community to participate by donating items to this auction.  The response has been grand, so we have removed any deadlines and will add donation through the close of the auction.  A benefit of being online.  Thank you!

Are you able to provide items our Delta community folks would be adventurous in bidding on?  While our theme for 2021 is Delta Experiences and Merchandise, we are not adverse to accepting items in other categories.
Like so many others, 2020-2021 is the year of making changes.  The Rotary Club of Walnut Grove is successfully transitioning their Annual Scholarship Dinner and Silent Auction online.  This method and platform is very new to all of our membership, however, the goal of supporting our kids, their education, and our community makes it easier to stay on target.
The Rotary Club of Walnut Grove, together with the Walnut Grove Rotary Foundation are currently soliciting donations for its upcoming silent-online auction - newly named, The Rotary Club of Walnut Grove Community Online Auction.  This may be our 1st ever online auction, but it is our 36th year of auctions.
Our Rotary Club supports this unique, small farming community of about 700 people in a magnitude of areas.  With 2020-2021 being so different, our President Rob has dedicated his Presidential Project to many smaller community efforts.
In past years, 2016-2019, this auction has enabled the club to grant thousands of dollars in scholarships - nearly $50,000 in these past few years alone and over $500,000 from the inception of the auction.  Some of these scholarships were helping students become the first in their families to attend college.
In addition, Rotary sponsors Delta High School student to participate in RYLA - a life-changing Leadership program, sponsor local Jr FireFighter camp, provided $8,000 to the Walnut Grove Community Church for the purchase and installation of a new HVAC system for our elders to have a safe zone during extra cold or hot days, helped purchase and install new picnic tables for the Dr. Paul Barnes Community Park and contributed $10,000 towards refinishing the splendid and original hardwood floors of the Jean Harvie Community Center.  In those same years, our Club, in conjunction with many, helped at the DEV or Delta Education Vineyard where students managed 2 acres.
Most recently, the Rotary Club of Walnut Grove is reaching for the stars and looking to have a Chromebook for each student at our elementary school.  Currently we have fundraised to purchase 36 of the 172 needed.  With virtual and distant learning, we have financed 11 hotspots located throughout the community so our students can access the internet for learning.
The list does go on!  As you can see we believe in the commitment to our community!  Please help us continue to assist our families and friends while continuing to make our community an even better place to live by donating an auction item or two.
Past donations have included Cabo and Tahoe vacations, dinners, lunch cruises on the San Francisco Bay and Delta Regions, jewelry, artwork, gift baskets, hunting trips, tools, wine and wine tours, toys, amazing spirits, sporting event seats, hotel stays, airplane and helicopter rides, play tickets, BBQ and gardening implements.......and many many other great items.
We publish a catalog of the silent auction items that is electronically distributed in January 2021.  It would be wonderful to include your items and achieve its highest bid offer.
