License to Chill is WinterKids’ favorite way to usher in the winter season. This year’s celebration included a virtual auction from November 10-19, followed by a live auction at Portland House of Music!

Hosted by Coast 93.1’s Blake & Kelly, our LIVE AUCTION featured live music by VINYL TAP drink tickets from ALLAGASH & MAINE CRAFT DISTILLING and treats from EIGHTY 8 DONUTS!

In honor of 10 years of CELEBRATING WINTER our Live Auction featured 10 High-Ticket auction items, plus, one surprise bonus item:


We were elated to announce that an additional bonus live auction item would be up for grabs at our LIVE EVENT on 11/19! Attendees battled it out for six tickets to the Sports Illustrated Awards at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Tuesday, December 7!

Hosted by DJ Khaled & Cari Champion, and featuring a musical performance by 2Chainz, this event features appearances from the world’s greatest athletes including Billie Jean King, Rob Gronkowski, LaMelo Ball, Logan Paul, Ray Lewis, Chad Johnson, Juju Smith-Schuster, Candice Parker and many more!
