The Big “C” Christmas Fantasy 2020


Christmas Fantasy Silent Auction changes for 2020 ... Like most events held in 2020, the 29th annual Christmas Fantasy will also change considerably this year due to COVID-19. The Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation will still have a Christmas Fantasy presence through a “Big C” Silent Auction, promoting “shopping locally” by offering silent auction items within area Waukon businesses. These auction items will not only offer a variety of Christmas gifts for sale locally, but encourage shoppers to do more local holiday shopping in safe settings, encouraging shopping at local businesses instead of out of town this holiday season.

Like most events held in 2020, the 29th annual Christmas Fantasy will also change considerably this year due to COVID-19.   The sponsor of this annual event, the Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation, reports this was not an easy decision since the annual Christmas Fantasy is always such a popular event, and they look forward to holding the extensive event again next year.

For 2020, the Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation will still have a Christmas Fantasy presence through a “Big C” Silent Auction.  They will be promoting “shopping locally” by offering silent auction items within area Waukon businesses.  These auction items will not only offer a variety of Christmas gifts for sale locally, but encourage shoppers to do more local holiday shopping in safe settings, hopefully decreasing the amount of out-of-town shopping and creating more local store traffic, helping the local businesses.

Silent Auction donations will all be displayed at the following businesses and ready for bid by Monday, November 23; Cunningham Hardware, Epic Wear, Hartig Drug, Howards Home Furnishings, Kerndt Brothers Bank, Krambeer Barber Shop, Say Now, Upper Iowa Insurance, Waukon Chamber of Commerce and Allamakee Economic Development, Waukon State Bank and WW Homestead Dairy.   All bidding on these silent auction items will cease Monday, December 7, the night of the Holiday Lights Parade in downtown Waukon.  Shoppers are invited to stop back at these businesses and increase their bids anytime over the course of those two weeks.

Veterans Memorial Hospital will be posting the silent auction displays located at each of these locations on its own website at www.veteransmemorialhospital.com and on the Veterans Memorial Hospital Facebook page. All the details for each display will be included plus the hours these businesses are open for bidding. All bids must be placed in person.  Bids cannot be taken over the phone by calling the business location, but again bidders are welcome to stop back in person to increase their bids.

For more information on the 2020 “Big C” Christmas Fantasy Silent Auction, call Erin Berns at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.
