Auction your stuff this Monday and help The Arc

The Auction Gal is hosting “First Monday Auctions” in Vancouver. The first auction will be held this Monday, April 2, starting at 6:05 p.m. at The Arc Southwest Washington, 6511 N.E. 18th St., a local nonprofit agency that provides education and advocacy for people and children with disabilities. Auctions will be held every first Monday of each month, with a preview of items an hour before the sale. When items are purchased, a 5% buyer’s premium goes to The Arc. Sellers will contribute 10% of their proceeds as a tax-deductible donation to The Arc. Sales tax applies, unless the purchaser has a reseller’s permit. The Arc also welcomes clothing donations. Sellers should contact Hilarie Couture at 360-836-2307 and bring items to The Arc from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 1. Food will be available to purchase at the event.
