I love auctions. Always have. There is a certain excitement that comes with bidding against others to obtain an item or an experience, that you desire. Live auctions bring that dynamic to a different level, since your challengers for the coveted prize are competing in the moment – in front of the crowd. It’s as close to my old days of athletic competition on the soccer field that I can remember.
On September 22nd at the Detroit Yacht Club, Kevin’s Song will host our Starry, Starry Night fundraiser. In addition to dinner, music and a celebration of our mission – there are the auctions. Silent and Live, you will have the opportunity to bid on some fantastic items that are sure to become topics of memories, keepsakes, and more.
To all of us at Kevin’s Song though – the auctions represent hope. The funds raised that night go to support our annual Conference on Suicide. They also support our Survivor Support Group work, and our collective activity with similar minded organizations around the state. In short, your bids allow us to serve our mission – and those who need us most.
Before you raise your bidding paddle, consider donating an item to the auction that will generate a flurry of activity. Provide a sponsorship that will broadcast your appreciation of our mission and the activity that surrounds it. Buy a ticket (or even a table) to the event, and help us celebrate the work of all of us who are determined to eliminate suicide.
The information links to become involved are supplied below. The motivation to click on those links and become an essential part of the solution – lies in your hearts. I’m betting that we all will win something that night. Something life changing. I don’t think there is anyone who can outbid me on that belief.
Looking forward to seeing you – and bidding with you.
