Ladies and Gentlemen, our silent auction is taking shape. The auction will take place on-premesis at the MADE, July 20, 21, and 22nd in the evening. Comedy and improv start at 6 PM, but bidding will be open both nights from 5 until at least 10 PM. Everything will be streamed here.
From Valve, we’ve got two goodie bags! The first features Portal 2 for 360 and PC, an Aperture Science water bottle, and a Portal T-shirt. The second bag features a TF 2 beanie, a TF 2 bag and best of, an inflatable Balloonicorn!
From MacLife, we have a two-pack of games, and the latest issue of the magazine.
We also have a prize pack from Kalypso Media, including games and t-shirts.
In addition to all of these wonderful items, some of our volunteers will be offering services, such as in-home technical support: the perfect gift for mom. Rent one of our volunteers to come over and install your parents’ new stereo and Blu-Ray player, or fix their wireless network.
Of course, there will also be world-class comedy throughout both evenings. You can see the full line up on our facebook event page here.
Incidentally, for those of you who are online and will be watching our stream: you will have a chance to participate in the silent auction on Saturday night. Bidding will close at 10 PM Saturday night, and if you’re interested in a specific item before that time, you can either email use a bid, or offer one in our IRC channel, or on the Twitch.tv chat stream, and we’ll write your bid in for you. Online bidders will have to agree to pay shipping, of course, which we’ll calculate after and if you win.
And as always, this entire event is designed to raise funds to keep our doors open! Please help us raise the funds we need to stay here. It’s incredibly difficult to raise the monthly funds for rent, Internet and insurance, especially in these difficult economic times. Your continued support not only allows us to continue our important work, but it keeps our volunteers infused with energy and excitement! Thank you, and please spread the word!
