Wood County Museum to host virtual fundraiser

The Wood County Museum is hosting an online auction fundraiser at https://www.32auctions.com/wcmgala2022 where participants can bid on prize packages.

The online auction will open on Oct. 7 at noon and will run until Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the virtual auction will support the efforts of the Wood County Museum & Historical Society, to bring the community exhibits and no or low-cost education programs and experiences.

Themed gift baskets will include local items and experiences from artists, merchants and restaurants across Ohio including: Toledo Museum of Art and Toledo Zoo, Hancock Hotel, Metroparks Toledo, Miller Ferries Put-In-Bay & Middle Bass Island, Wild Side Brewing Company and Imagination Station. Prize packages encompass collectibles, art and get-away experiences.

Those wanting to support the historical society fundraising goal of $15,000 can also purchase “no-show” tickets for $55/person or make a donation directly from the auction site or the museum website at woodcountyhistory.org.
