Our Misson

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.  All proceeds go directly to the local children's organizations to promote health, well-being, and 

education while inspiring Erie area youth to fulfill their dreams. 

Last Year's Event

The previous year's Bids for Kids was a definite success! We raised over $161,000! Over the last 26 years, Bids for Kids has raised nearly 2 million dollars to support the local chapters of the Boys and Girls Club, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Shriners Hospital, so they can provide young girls and boys hope and comfort in their time of need. Without the generosity of individuals and businesses, we would not be able to make this event a success!






Our Bids for Kids Team is working hard to make this event as amazing as it has been in years past. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us. You can also see the whole team on the BFK 2021 Team Page here. We look forward to seeing you on the Night of!
