City Auctions Off Gift Baskets for Charity [AUDIO]

The city of Casper is auctioning off 12 gift baskets to benefit Natrona County kids through the Totes of Hope program.

“Current bids are only 10, 20, 50 dollars each, which is an excellent price for the amount of value of these items in each one of these things. They benefit the Totes of Hope program; it’s a program of the Wyoming Food Bank. It’s open until the 16th, that’s this Friday at 3 pm. So, by all means, everybody should go, right now, immediately, to their computers and settle a bid, right now, because that way you know you’ve got something on the list, and then preferably bid constantly between now and then, constantly raising the price, because it is all for charity.”

Meyers says the Totes of Hope program puts together backpacks of food for local kids who rely on their schools for nutrition. The Totes of Hope help tide them over during the holidays when schools are closed.

Meyers suggest the baskets could also be a one-stop shop for Christmas, with one basket having a host of individual gifts. The baskets can be viewed online but he recommends stopping into City Hall and giving them a look. That website is
