Organised by Bayleys Real Estate - The Great Guide Dog Online Auction aims to raise funds to support the raising and training of Blind Foundation Guide Dogs.
Bayleys staff have worked tirelessly to collect 100s of auction items, which will be listed on TradeMe starting on May 13.
All items will be listed with just a $1 reserve under the Great Guide Dog Online Auction heading.
