The Waterville Rotary Club hosts the auction each year in late November to benefit what Rotarians determine to be among the worthiest causes of the region. Every year, for more than half a century, this important community event has raised money to meet area needs. Projects such as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Maine General Medical Center’s new regional hospital, the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care, Inland Hospital, High Hopes Clubhouse, the Rotary Centennial Trail, The Muskie Center, local community food banks, the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, area youth scholarships, and camperships for kids are all included in Rotary’s efforts to make a difference in our community.
