Basket Auction for Meals on Wheels
17th Annual Meals on Wheels Basket Auction .............
Saturday, July 22, at 2 p.m. At the Broomfield Community Center, 280 Spader Way in Broomfield.
The Broomfield Meals on Wheels program provides over 20,000 meals annually to Broomfield’s citizens. No federal or state funding is received for this program; we depend on fundraising efforts and the generosity of the community.
Please plan to attend the 17th Annual Meals on Wheels Basket Auction to benefit Broomfield Meals on Wheels. There will be a large variety of high quality baskets from local businesses, citizens, and organizations available for bid. Enjoy live entertainment, brews from Nighthawk Brewery, kid's craft table sponsored by Broomfield Council on the Arts and Humanities (BCAH), and delicious libations and appetizers while you view and bid on the beautiful array of baskets. Invite your family and friends down for an afternoon of fun and go home knowing you made a difference in the life of a Broomfield community member, with a basket in tow.
