What is the Dinner Auction?

Each year, Lakeview Ministries holds a dinner auction to support camp and all that this ministry provides.  The evening provides a lot of fun and entertainment, but the big winners are the campers!  Proceeds from all winning bids and cash donations go into the camp’s general operating fund.

The schedule for the Dinner Auction is as follows:

5:00 Doors Open / Hors D’oeuvres Served
6:15 Announcements and Meal Prayer
6:30 Dinner is Served
7:45 Oral Auction Begins
8:00 Silent Auction Booths Begin Closing
9:00 Oral Auction Concludes
9:15 Fellowship, Dancing, Checkout


Where can I purchase tickets?

You can purchase a ticket or reserve a table HERE.  You can either purchase a single ticket for yourself, or, if you would like to come with a group of family and friends, you can reserve a table for a group of 8.  If you reserve a table of 8 you will, of course, have complete control over who sits at your table.  But even if you purchase a single ticket you will still be able to make requests for who sits at your table.


How can I donate an item for the Dinner Auction?

Bidding online was a little tricky last year-are things going to be easier this year?

Yes!  Last year was our first year doing online bidding, and we learned many things in the process.  This year we have upgraded to a new online bidding service that is very simple to use and much more user-friendly.
