Tickets Available for Bids for Kids 2018

Bids for Kids 2018 is almost here! Bids for Kids is a charitable, volunteer-based organization that is committed to enriching the lives of children in the greater Erie area. Our aim is to raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish, Shriner's Hospitals for Children, and the Erie Boys & Girls Club through benefit events.  All proceeds go directly to the local children's organizations to promote health, well-being, and education while inspiring Erie area youth to fulfil their dreams.

Bids for Kids is an elegant evening featuring both a live and silent auction, three course dinner, and open bar. In our 23rd consecutive year, we hope to exceed last year’s fundraising total of over $215,000. Bids for Kids started in 1995 as a way for the GE Leadership Programs to help the local children of Erie and Northwestern Pennsylvania. Since then, this event has grown from a simple GE event into an Erie community mainstay. Without the generosity of individuals, businesses, and our sponsors, we would not be able to make this event what it has become.

Bids for Kids is truly a great event and attending in person is always a memorable experience. Ticket sales are live and close on February 3rd, so please visit to purchase your ticket or table reservation today! Please reach out to Hannah Mazzocchi with any questions.

If you cannot attend in person, you can still support this great cause by making a donation online or bidding on auction items the night-of through our app, Bidr. Find out more on the website!
