Quarter Auction Adoption Benefit


WHO: Sea of Hope is holding their 2nd annual Quarter Auction to benefit local adoptive families and assist in covering adoption expenses! The proceeds from this event will go towards adoption expenses for the Townsend Family & the Bestul Family.

WHAT: What is a Quarter Auction you ask?

Well, it is a fun night with friends and family where you bid using quarters on prizes ranging from $25-$100.

It is $5 to purchase a numbered auction paddle (you may purchase as many as you would like). Using your paddle(s) you can bid on any or all the prizes. Each item that is bid on is based on $25 increments. A chance to win a $25 item is only 1 quarter (For a chance to win a $50 prize you bid only 2 quarters and so on) So, you can win prizes of $100 for only $1!

SO....BRING YOUR QUARTERS and BRING YOUR FRIENDS and get ready for a FUN, FAMILY-FRIENDLY NIGHT! (Children welcome of course!)

WHERE: North Side Baptist Church has graciously offered to host our event (Thank you North Side Baptist Church for your hospitality).

WHEN: February 4th

Doors open at 5:00pm to preview auction items and mingle with friends and family members.

FOOD: If you would like to purchase a plates of food (hot dog, chips, and a drink) will be offered for a reasonable fee. (All food has been donated, so all funds gathered for food will go directly to the adoptive families!)

There will also be Bake Sale items available for purchase (100% of bake sale donations go to our local families adoption funds)!


So, don't be late because you don't want to miss out on these opportunities to win big and all for a great cause.

WHY: God calls us to look after orphans (James 1:27), but adoption is an expensive endeavor. Therefore, A Sea of Hope wants to team up with you to assist these families in answering the call to adopt.

MORE INFO: If you have any additional questions or would like any additional information please contact Susie Townsend at or Andrea Bestul at

DONATE PRIZES: If you would like to donate prizes or you are a vendor that would like to get involved (a gift certificate, a service from your business, a basket to auction, would would greatly appreciate any contributions you are willing to make).

We have many prizes to include (but not limited to) Gas cards, movie baskets, jewlery, vera bradley bag, gift certificates to restaurants, hair salons, foodlion, and so much more! We also have 10 local home-business vendors that have committed to coming and will have their products/services available for the auction as well.

If you are in the Jacksonville/Wilmington NC area, you don't want to miss this opportunity! We hope that you will show your support by attending! It should be a wonderful time, a chance to win great prizes, and all for a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there! (Don't forget to bring your friends and your quarters!)
