Our Purpose

Bids for Kids is a charitable, volunteer-based organization that is committed to enriching the lives of children in the greater Erie area.  Our aim is to raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the Erie Boys & Girls Club through benefit events available to all demographics in Erie.  All proceeds raised by our volunteers go directly to the local children's organizations to promote health, well-being, and education while inspiring Erie area youth to fulfill their dreams.  Below are a few ways you can support the cause: 

The event will be held the night of February 20th, 2016 at the Bayfront Convention Center.
