On March 18-19, True Life Youth Ministries (formerly Lebanon Valley Youth for Christ) will host their 36th annual Bids4Kids benefit auction. The two-day event will take place at the Lebanon Expo Center, 80 Rocherty Rd. Lebanon, PA 17042.

For over 76 years, True Life Youth Ministries has existed to Build a Community of Young Lives Changed by Jesus Christ. All proceeds from the benefit auction will go to weekly programs, camps, and special student experiences, allowing staff to minister to students on a full-time basis.

This year’s auction will include sports memorabilia, themed gift baskets, quilts, bikes, tools, lawn and garden items, paint and paint supplies, gift certificates, new items, and gently used items.

In addition to great items to bid on, delicious food and desserts are available throughout the event. On Saturday morning from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast will be hosted at the auction. Saturday also includes Boyd’s Chicken BBQ from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pre-purchased tickets are recommended for the BBQ.
