Online Auction to Benefit Habitat for Humanity

lex hab 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (12/5/13) – The Lexington Habitat for Humanity is hosting its fourth annual Bids 4 Builds online auction through Sunday, Dec. 8. The project gives holiday shoppers an alternative way to buy gifts for loved ones and 100 percent of the profits benefit the Lexington Habitat for Humanity.

Shoppers can bid on items in a number of categories including art, autographs, bourbon and beer, health and fitness and many more. Items include an autographed basketball signed by former UK men's basketball coaches, an autographed picture of 'The Walking Dead' star Andrew Lincoln, UK men's basketball tickets, and reserved box tickets for Churchill Downs plus many others.

Lexington Habitat for Humanity's Resource Development Coordinator Megan Meserve said all of the items are 100 percent donated, meaning they will receive a full profit from each purchase made in the auction. Last year, the online auction raised over $11,000. This year they hope to reach $15,000.

“It's just a way for people to buy gifts for the holidays or for themselves and support Habitat for Humanity at the same time,” said Meserve.

Bids 4 Build will culminate in a Holiday Open House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Habitat ReStore located at 451 Southland Drive. The winning bidders will be able to pick-up their purchases at the event or other arrangements can be made. The winning bidders will be contacted with instructions on how to pay for or collect their items. No items will be able to be shipped other than gift cards.

The Lexington Habitat for Humanity is a Christian ministry that partners with volunteers and donors to eliminate substandard housing and provide simple, affordable homes for low-income families built with the help of community partners. More than 380 families in Lexington and 300 families worldwide are first time homeowners because of the support from the Lexington Habitat for Humanity and the community.

Meserve said the homes they build cost anywhere from $80,000 to $100,000. She added fundraisers like this are a big help when it comes to covering those costs.

“Our homes cost quite a bit to build,” said Meserve. “This will be a chunk of one house that it supports. It's just another way to have some fun with it. We talk about it being a gift that gives twice.”
