WHS Rock Your Rescue Style Online Silent Auction Underway
Since the pandemic started back in March, one of the hardest hit sections of society has been charitable organizations. Without fundraising events and many donors being out of work, there just isn't the funding to continue to keep operations going smoothly. So, many charities had to think outside of the box to help raise funds.
The Warrick Humane Society is a non-profit animal rescue in Newburgh that relies solely on private contributions. To help offset some of their costs, they are currently hosting an online style auction on Facebook.
Here are the official "rules" from the event page.
Welcome to our 2020 Rock Your Rescue Style Online Silent Auction! To bid on an item, comment your bid below the picture. Minimum bid increase $1. Make sure you are on the actual picture and not the album or a picture that someone has shared. To claim an item that has multiples (Items 116-122), simply comment below the item you want. The first people to comment will get this item. You can claim one per item. Bidding will start once pictures are posted which will be on August 3rd, 2020 at approximately 10am. Bidding will end promptly August 9th at 8:00pm. We will use Facebook’s time stamps to judge what the last bid was on or before 7:59pm. Winners will be notified by Facebook Messenger. If you have won an item and do not use Facebook Messenger, please email us promptly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Items must be paid for by August 15th, 2020, or the item will go to the second highest bidder. Payment will be accepted in the form of cash, check, credit card (in person or over the phone) and PayPal. Due to COVID-19, we are happy to arrange curbside pickup of items. Items can be shipped for $8/lot. Please note: Actual product color may vary from the images shown. Every monitor or mobile display has a different capability to display colors, and every individual may see these colors differently. In addition, lighting conditions at the time the photo was taken can also affect an image's color. All sales are final.
I put together a sampling of some of the items listed. But, remember there are so so so many more colors, sizes, and accessories to choose from! Head over to their event page to see more!
