Charity Auction


The Annual Charity Auction is our primary fundraising activity with proceeds going to 501(c)(3) non-profits operating in the Gallatin Valley.   GVNC members select the charities who will be the recipients of the proceeds from our annual auction.  We also have a huge bake sale offering many wonderful sweets and savories for Christmas and the holiday season.  The event features a sit-down luncheon, silent and live auctions.

Our 2019 Charity Auction was held on December 5 at Riverside Country Club. The Newcomers’ holiday auction was a big success thanks to the many member volunteers (well over 50!) and the generosity of the many businesses in our community who donated to our silent and live auctions. And of course to the Newcomers members who participated in the bidding and the cash call.

We are most pleased to announce that we are donating $11,375 to each of our charities:  the Rock Youth Center and the HRDC Warming Center. Heartfelt thanks to both organizations for the services they provide in our community. Checks will be presented to both organizations at our February 5 luncheon meeting.
