Simonton Windows will host its 11th annual window and door auction to benefit the American Cancer Society on Saturday, April 28. During the past decade, the yearly charity fundraiser has generated more than $330,000 for the Relay for Life fundraising efforts in Ritchie County, W.Va.

The auction, held at Simonton's manufcturing facility in Ellenboro, W.Va., enables homeowners, builders and remodelers to view and bid on hundreds of new windows and doors.

“This yearly event is a tremendous way for people to purchase top-quality, energy-efficient Simonton products at a fraction of their market price,” says Dave Meeks, co-organizer of the event and a dispatcher/scheduler at Simonton. “These are brand new, high-quality products. We’ll have an assortment of new windows, patio doors and bay windows available at the auction."

Last year, the auction generated more than $30,000 for the American Cancer Society, and organizers hope to do as well this year," he continues.

“I expect some Simonton windows will be available starting as low as $10 each, with an average expected auction price of between $40 to $50 each. Patio doors are expected to sell for between $100 and $175 each. These are tremendous deals for top-quality products and the purchases benefit the American Cancer Society.”

In addition to auction proceeds, volunteers from Simonton will also offer refreshments for sale to further raise funds.
