Big Brothers Big Sisters Auckland (BBBS Auckland) is excited to announce its upcoming fundraising event, The Big Auction, set to take place in person on Thursday, September 12, 2024, at The Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central. Bidding for the Big Auction will start on September 1st and the auction will be hybrid, in-person and online. This highly anticipated event aims to raise crucial funds to support the fundraising campaign, 24K for 2024, to hire another Mentor Coordinator as our small team hits max capacity. With 100+ children on the waitlist, the Big Auction fundraiser will enable us the man-power to recruit, train, and match more mentors to provide their invaluable guidance and support to vulnerable children across Auckland.

The Big Auction promises an evening filled with excitement, entertainment, and the opportunity to bid on exclusive items and experiences. The event will commence at 7:00 PM, welcoming guests from all walks of life who are united by their commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of local youth.

“We are incredibly excited to host The Big Auction and bring our community together for a night of generosity and celebration,” says Chelsey, our BBBS Auckland Program Manager. “The funds raised from this event will directly support growing our mentorship program, helping us to continue providing life-changing relationships for the children who need it most.”
