The Record North Shore Launch Auction

Support nonprofit, independent community news

Welcome! And thank you for coming to support nonprofit local news. The Record is a startup news nonprofit that covers the North Shore of Chicago. We officially launched on Oct. 1 and are funded almost excluslively by reader and community support. 

Local residents and businesses came through big time to load up this auction with a plethora of unique, creative and one-of-a-kind finds. So take a look around and stay awhile. The auction will last for a week, until Monday, Oct. 19. Every dollar goes toward real, nonpartisan local news. 

This auction is an extension of our launch party, as we celerbate our site going live and fundraise to support our local-news efforts. Launch party tickets are available for any donation at:


All the best and happy bidding!
