May 14, 2015 -
The City of Kingston is now auctioning off items from the Wally Elmer Youth Centre online. The Wally closed on May 1 to make way for a new community centre to be built – part the plan to revitalize the Rideau Heights neighbourhood.
Bidding is now live at the online auction hosted by MaxSold (http://maxsold.maxsold.com/auction/616). Items include: the arena scoreboard, signs, seasonal decorations, kids' books and toys, sports and gym equipment, computer equipment, gardening tools, kitchen items and furniture.
Proceeds from the auction will go to PROkids – the City charity that helps kids from low-income families participate in recreational activities.
Bidding is now live and ends on Tuesday, May 19 at noon. Please note that you must be able to pick up your items on Thursday, May 21 between 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the facility (50 MacCauley St.).
