Welcome to our biggest fundraiser of the year!
Welcome to the 2021 Torch 180 Online Auction!
We are excited to once again host our annual online auction.
Bidding will begin on October 15 at 2:00PM and all bids will end on October 23 at 12:30PM.
Help us Recoup & Recover!
The impacts and challenges of the pandemic continue to be obstacles we face and try to recover, however, we are confident that with community support Torch 180 will march on, adapt, and succeed in our mission to empower individuals with disabilites and prepare them for employment.
Every bid is a WIN for Torch 180!
The holiday shopping season has begun, and we are thrilled to offer some fabulous items, unique experiences, and one-of-a-kind gifts. Our partners have graciously donated these in hopes of helping Torch 180 raise funds to continue our mission, and they would be delighted if their items stirred up some interest and fierce bidding which would bring in bonus cash above the value to benefit our students!
Shop and bid at your leisure during the week long event, and stay tuned for some pop-up fun along the way!
Every dollar makes an impact!
The majority of Torch 180's operational costs are funded by our generous donors and community sponsors. Please consider becoming a Torch 180 supporter! All proceeds of this year's auction will go towards student training fees and operational costs so that we can continue to add students to our program and bring fresh flavors and an excellent customer experience to our Torch 180 cafe guests.
Torch 180 is a fully operational coffee shop and restaurant where young adults with disabilities are provided hands-on training in the culinary industry. Upon completion of the program, we assist students to secure gainful employment within their communities.
Torch 180 is open to the public and is currently serving customers Wednesdays-Fridays 8:30-3:00.
