The live auction benefits the Abilitas Foundation, which is building the Cold Water Ranch Respite Lodge in Merritt, B.C. for families living with disabilities.

The auction, held at Handlers Equipment in Abbotsford, will feature industrial, agricultural and residential equipment.

Consignees take home the proceeds of the sale, less the auction fee (20 to 25 per cent). Equipment owners are also invited to donate their items to the foundation for a tax receipt.

Equipment must be delivered to Handlers Equipment by Sept. 14.
