This year's event will be hybrid!
Stay tuned for more details.

In our 27th consecutive year, we hope to exceed last year's fundraising total with a goal of $200,00.

BFK Event History

Bids for Kids started in 1995 as a way for at the time GE Leadership Programs, now the Wabtec LEAD Program, to help the local children of Erie and Northwestern Pennsylvania. Since then, this event has grown from a simple company-wide event into an Erie community mainstay. Without the generosity of individuals, businesses, and our sponsors, we would not be able to make this event what it has become.
