These and other fabulous items, from food to artwork to jewelry, are up for auction right now!
The Black and White Gala is Saturday evening. We hope you’re planning to be there—it’s the only way you can bid on LIVE auction items. But if you’re not able to attend, you can still participate in our silent auction, which opens at 7 a.m. today, Saturday, February 24. Go here to set up your account and start bidding!
Yep, that’s right. You can browse the auction items from the comfort of your couch! You can bid using your phone from the sidelines of your kids’ Saturday afternoon games, or while standing in line at Starbucks. You could score some great stuff, help single moms, all without missing a beat of your busy day. Again, just create your account and start browsing now by clicking here.
The auction is a great way to support single moms while getting some fun gifts in the process. Last year, the gala raised $130,000, far exceeding our goals for the evening. And $16,000 of that came from the silent auction. So even if you can’t attend the gala, you can make a difference by participating in the silent auction.
It’s super easy to put in a bid and keep up with the action. Log on and you’ll be able to view all the items, bid on anything, and receive real time updates on every item.
If you’re the top bidder, you’ll be notified, again via your phone. You will be able to collect your items starting Monday at the Fellowship Housing offices, 2200 W. Higgins Rd., Suite 130, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169.
Please keep in mind that if you’re not around locally to pick up large items, you will need to pay shipping fees.
