The Green Bay Aquarium Society (GBAS) has announced that this year’s fundraising event will support Pets In the Classroom, a grant program that provides funding to pre-K-9th grade teachers to purchase and maintain classroom pets. All monies raised by auctioning certain designated auction lots by GBAS will go toward this fund.
“This is such a great opportunity,” GBAS President John Moyles said. “We, as a club, feel that it is important to give back to the aquatic community both locally and on the national level. Pets in the Classroom is doing really great work getting kids involved with pets that they might not get to care for at home.”
GBAS will hold its Fall Auction on Sunday, October 29, 2017 at the Starlite Club, W2091 County Rd JJ, Kaukauna, Wisconsin, 54130.
Seller set up begins at 9 a.m., and the bidding starts at 10:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be available on site.
GBAS is a non-profit educational organization whose purpose is to further the study of all forms of aquatic life, to promote interest, exchange ideas, and distribute information concerning the aquarium hobby, and to encourage the display of aquatic life. The auction supports this purpose by providing an outlet for area hobbyists to re-home the fish and corals they have propagated and/or to find varieties of corals and other aquatic life not readily available at area stores. New and used equipment will also be available as well as door prizes and raffles.
