iBOP will hold its  biggest fundraiser of the year Saturday at the Baker Youth Club on Smith Street in Warsaw.

Proceeds from this year’s Winter Wonderland Bazaar & Quarter Paddle Auction  will benefit “A Bridge to Hope,” a local organization that works with families to pair people with the best options to address addictions.

“We want to bring awareness to what ‘A Bridge to Hope’ is striving to accomplish,” said Betty Swanson, iBOP president.

iBOP – Indiana Business Opportunity Partners, a local not-for-profit group – has several events throughout the year to support local charities.

The fundraiser features a craft show and vendor bazaar from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Grab bags are available for the first 25 patrons ages 18 and above.

The bazaar is free for all ages to attend. No one under 18 will be admitted to the quarter paddle auction.

The quarter paddle auction will be from 1 to 4 p.m., with doors opening at noon. More than 100 items from vendors, crafters and local merchants will be offered.

Auction admission tickets are available in advance for $5 and will be $7 the day of the auction. Tickets are limited so participants are encouraged to arrive early to guarantee a seat.

During the auction, admission tickets will be exchanged for a numbered auction paddle. Items with a retail value up to $24.99 cost bidders one quarter. For each $25 dollar increase a quarter is added. Any items valued at $75 or higher will cost four quarters to bid.

Bidders will raise their paddles and supply a quarter per retail level of the item up for sale, entering them into a drawing. Should a paddle number be drawn that did not bid, guests will be asked to shout, “No bid,” and follow an honor system.

There will be one winner per round. All money collected will be donated to the charity.

In addition to partnering with A Bridge to Hope, each member of iBOP has donated an item from their direct sales business to a raffle basket valued at over $140. Money collected from the raffle basket will be donated to Combined Community Services.

A few spots are left for vendors; contact iBOP to reserve a space.
