So you’ve heard about The Wonderland Auction: A Whimsical Evening to Benefit Vermont Youth and want to know what all the hype is about? Well, here’s five reasons you should stop what you’re doing and go register…like right now.

1. Support great causes

Just by showing up to the event, you are making a contribution to better our community and support its various youth development initiatives. With half the ticket sales benefiting Spectrum Youth and Family Services and auction proceeds supporting the Paul Gallagher Entrepreneurial Scholarship, the night is devoted to servicing those in need.
