About the Event

Bids for Kids is an elegant evening featuring both a live and silent auction, three course dinner, and open bar. In our 26th consecutive year, we hope to exceed last year’s fundraising total of over $175,000.

Bids for Kids started in 1995 as a way for the GE Leadership Programs to help the local children of Erie and Northwestern Pennsylvania. Since then, this event has grown from a simple GE 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.

In addition to the live and silent auctions, the event will include games like Bayfront Jackpot, Poker, a Mini Golf Challenge, Diamond Decadence and more!
