Tuckerton Seaport will officially open its long awaited and highly anticipated Online Summer Auction on July 13th, featuring 13 lucky items with opening bids of just $13 each.  As they dry out from Superstorm Sandy, they are looking forward to getting back to business and having a little fun this summer. 

Bidders from throughout the state have watched this third annual fundraising event take shape over the last few months as items slowly but surely arrived on the auction site.  Much to the surprise of even the Seaport staff, over 100 items valued at over $15,000 were donated by local businesses. The Seaport hopes this innovative approach to fundraising will bring in strong community support for their educational programs. 

Thanks to funding events like this one, the Seaport never turns away a school who cannot afford the field trip cost.  Executive Director Paul Hart explained:  “Allowing supporters to bid from the convenience of their home computers any time of day makes it possible for more people to participate in this fundraising event easily. 

With such a wide variety of items and experience, I am sure there is something everyone would be excited to bid on.  Plus, you know that your bids will be supporting educational programs right here at the Jersey Shore.”  Tuckerton Seaport is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization that receives tremendous support from the local community for which we are tremendously grateful.  We also ask all of our guests to patronize the businesses who have generously donated to our auction as they are valuable community partners.
