The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, the Animals for Life Foundation and Ohio Center on Agricultural Law, Inc. are hosting the seventh annual Rural-Urban Community Auction.

Auction participants will place bids for items online during the month of November, with a live bidding finale during Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s Annual Meeting in Columbus Nov. 30.

Participants may log onto the online auction toward the end of October to register and may start bidding on unique items such as get-away packages, home goods, sports memorabilia, collectibles, adventure items and more starting Nov. 1. Bidders may stay involved in the auction using the “Absentee Bidding” option and are invited to attend the final live session.

“In addition to items submitted by businesses, organizations and friends of Farm Bureau, Ohio’s county Farm Bureaus will provide many unique items for bid that best represent their local communities,” said Dale Arnold, Foundation board member and auction coordinator.

Further information and instructions are available at www.ofbf.cmarket.com.

The Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation supports projects that focus on education, environmental and economic development issues concerning agriculture and its impact on consumers and communities.

The Animals for Life Foundation focuses on increasing acceptance and understanding of human-animal interdependency and works to achieve public recognition that animals bring value to human life each day.

The Ohio Center on Agricultural Law provides education in agricultural law matters and operates as a public interest law firm to participate in litigation and other legal matters of importance to the agricultural community and of broad public interest.
