LPCAR Annual Deserving Children's Charity Auction 

It is time once again for our annual charity auction!  This year we are planning on taking close to 600 truly needy children from LaPorte County.  

The goal of the LaPorte County Realtors is to continue to make a difference in our community and make this a memorable holiday season for the deserving children of LaPorte County.  For over 45 years we have held our Charity Auction and also raise money throughout the year to fund the Charity Shopping event.  We hope you continue to support this worthy cause.

Dinner table reservations are almost sold out - we only have a few tables left so please make sure to reserve your table for our event.  Individual dinner tickets are also available..  Please contact Julie Wagner if you are interested in purchasing a ticket for our event or reserving a table (tables of 8). Dinner tickets are $60 per person or a table of 8 for $480.  Our auction event doors open at 5:00 p.m. CST at the Civic Auditorium in La Porte. Dinner begins at 6 pm and the auction begins at 7:00 p.m.  We hope to have great success this year.

Auction Donation Items are needed!   In order for our auction to be successful, we need items to auction off!  If you do not plan on attending our event, please consider donating an item or two to help the cause.  All types of items are needed but some suggestion include tech items such as Nest, Amazon Alexa, Security systems, smartphones and accessories; children's toys; Holiday Home decor; certificates for experiences or services, etc.  If you are interested in donating an item, please contact the board office at 219-324-8120 for more information.

We would like to thank all of our charity committee volunteers for working year-round to make this a successful event.  Our committee starts working at the beginning of the year and continues until the shopping event has concluded.  We appreciate their dedication and passion they show for our charity!

We hope to see some of you at our event on Friday, November 17, 2023 at the Civic Auditorium in La Porte

LaPorte County Deserving Children Shopping Tour

Deserving Children Shopping Tour is a local charity where money is raised to take the children of LaPorte County shopping. 100% of the money raised stays here in LaPorte County.  In previous years the children went shopping with approved chaperones and were also treated to a visit with Santa, free happy meals and a gift bag full of holiday goodies.  This year we are finally able to return to in-person shopping with the kids! Information for the shopping event is coming soon. Last year over 600 children in LaPorte County were able to take advantage of this program. The LaPorte County Realtors hold fundraising events throughout the year to support this need in our community. 

This year the shopping events will take place in December - dates for both nights will be announced soon.  The shopping will take place at the La Porte Walmart, Michigan City Walmart, and Michigan City Meijer.  Please consider spending a few hours during the Holiday Season to help create a wonderful season for the children in need.  Use the button below to begin the registration process.  Please contact the board office if you have any questions.

Volunteer To Shop with The Kids!  Shopping Chaperones Needed!

Each and every year the Deserving Children's Shopping Tour relies on volunteers to make this a successful event.  Shopping Chaperones are needed for both Shopping Nights - Michigan City and La Porte.   If you would like to volunteer as a Chaperone, please complete the following form. 

All Volunteers will be required to complete a waiver.  Please download a copy of the waiver and send the completed form back with a copy of your driver's license to complete the process.
