Published 10:31 am Friday, January 15, 2016

Lyle Area Cancer organizers are looking to give potential bidders a chance to study up on an item before they bid on it at this weekend’s annual auction.

For the second year in a row, a timeshare will be up for bid during the auction.

A resident donated a timeshare through Bluegreen Vacations, which will be up for auction on Saturday night during the auction, which takes place starting at 6 p.m. tonight and 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Lyle Legion and adjoining city of Lyle maintenance building.

Larry Ricke, LAC co-chairman, said people should read up on the timeshare, which can be used by a family for stays at locations around the world operated by Bluegreen.

Ownership of the timeshare also includes an annual $600 maintenance fee.

The family who donated the timeshare bought it for $15,000 15 years ago, but decided to donate it to LAC because they can’t travel as often at their age, according to Ricke.

The family that donated the timeshare could not be immediately reached for comment.
