The biggest auction in Prescott-Russell will soon be in Rockland.
The United Way Prescott-Russell Auction will be held on Saturday, September 8 at the Jean-Marc Lalonde arena in Rockland. Several merchants will be putting products or services for sale in this auction and the proceeds will then be shared between the participating merchants and United Way. Furniture and decor, jewelry, vehicles, electronics and golf memberships, amongst others, will be some of the products up for auction.
At the time of publication, Meubles Accent Rockland, Vitrerier Glass Mirror Plus Plus Inc., Rona J. Lalonde & Fil Rockland, Rockland Sports, Rockland Golf Club and Carriere & Poirier Equipment Ltd are the participating businesses.

United Way aims to raise $ 40 000 at the upcoming auction for local community programs, while also promoting and supporting local businesses. Denis Vaillancourt, president of Centraide/United Way Prescott-Russell, and Jean-Marc Lalonde, campaign chair for the auction, have been promoting this major fundraiser event to local councils and other regional groups since at least January of last year.
