Bret Harte's Sister School Silent Auction

Pre-bid Auction

Yes, you can bid on items you want before the auction opens at 4:30pm on May 3 at our Cultural Fair. Doing so gives you more time to see all of the wonderful booths and cultural performances and it guarantees that you have a starting chance to have the winning bid.

Note: All funds raised (100%) will be used to provide scholarships for 34 Cambodian village 7th-12th grade girls who were forced to drop out because their families are so poor. Every $1 provides a day in school for a girl.

Rural girls who have dropped out of school are targeted for kidnapping into sex slavery since they often work alone. While at school, girls are physically safe.

Also, since these girls work in rural isolation, they can’t form close friendships with their peers. At school, they can form lifelong friendships.

Education gives these girls the priceless gift of hope: an opportunity to create a better future. Please help us provide this gift.

 

Here's how to enter your pre-bid for the items below that you want:

Send us an email at

dorisdillonschool@gmail.com

listing the

  • ITEM NUMBER,

  • brief DESCRIPTION of your item (e.g., "Fjallraven Kanken backpack"),

  • and the AMOUNT you want to pay.

  • NOTE: Your bid must be at the STARTING BID or higher.

A classic pre-bid strategy: Think of the maximum you would pay for an item and send us a pre-bid for that amount. This way, your bid is listed on the bid sheet before the auction begins and, if no one over-bids you, you've won!!! And, best of all, you don't spend precious Cultural Fair time hovering over the items you want trying to out-bid everyone else...

DEADLINE: PLEASE EMAIL YOUR BIDS TO dorisdillonschool@gmail.com BY 3PM FRIDAY, MAY 3
