Welcome To The Auction!


Welcome to PLA's first online silent auction. Each auction will last seven days and will include packages for you to bid on. Packages are in the form of Certificates and will change with each auction. When the auction closes winning bidders will be notified. 

PLA provides a well-used community web site, two regional Face Book pages, a summer “Monday Night Concerts in the Park” series, village banners and Christmas lighting displays, petunias along our business district, fishing tournaments, fireworks, Fall and Christmas Festivals, community newsletters and PLA Scholarships to our Onekama schools.We accomplish all of this with hundreds of volunteer hours and the generous donations from our businesses and individual donor's.

Please take a moment to view our silent auction items and consider making a bid. Portage Lake Association relies on fundraisers like this to make it all happen. The success of the PLA's programs are due to the generous support we receive from people like you. We really appreciate your support!  Thank you.


Any questions regarding the details of the packages should be emailed  to Al Taylor at
