Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce officials announced this week the cancellation of the annual Cabin Fever Event, and the move for the event to an online auction of items that is currently available on the organization’s Facebook page.
The online auction is open through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, and 100 percent of proceeds benefit the Indian Lake fireworks show.
“It is with great sadness that we unfortunately have to cancel our Cabin Fever Event for this year. If you or your establishment purchased tickets, we are doing our best to make calls and figure everything out. There are a lot of tickets that were purchased. Although this is unfortunate, there is always a bright side that we have to look at.
“We have decided that since we already had multiple business donate baskets, tickets and many other miscellaneous items, we will be doing a virtual auction this year. This means that even if you did not have a ticket for Cabin Fever, the auction is now available for everyone to bid on various baskets and items. We have items that are valued for more than $300.”
Bidding takes place in the comments section of the photos for each individual auction item. Bids must be placed in $5 increments.
A minimum/starting bid is offered for each basket, along with the overall value and a detailed description.
A quarter-page ad space for the Bellefontaine Examiner is among the auction items available for bid.
