This year’s Charity Bash will be held on Friday, February 26th from 12-1pm in WLH to support Home of New Vision, a local organization that offers transitional housing for women recovering from chemical dependency, and Safe House Ann Arbor, also a local organization that provides safety, support, advocacy and resources for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence and their children. We’re hoping to surpass last year’s Charity Bash which raised almost $4,000!
This year’s Charity Bash will also include a Pizza House Fundraiser. Simply mention AMWA before placing your order at Pizza House on Feb 26th and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to our cause! Orders can include delivery, take-out, or dine-in at Pizza House ALL DAY!
In addition to the auctions and Pizza House Fundraiser, there will be a Faculty Student Broom-ball tournament taking place on Saturday, February 27th from 5:30-7:00 at Vets Memorial Park (2150 Jackson Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48103). Come and watch students and favorite faculty members face off, and mingle and munch on snacks!
The bidding system is similar to eBay — just enter the maximum amount that you are willing to bid, and the system will automatically place the lowest possible winning bid. For example, if you enter a max bid of $75, and the second highest bidder puts a max bid of $50, then you win and you pay $51. Still confused? Click here for help! If you are outbid, you will be notified via email (though this system is new and may be flaky–so check back often!).
Silent auctions will close at 7:00 pm on Feb 27th. Live auctions will be available for online bidding until 12 pm on Feb 26th. After 12:00pm, the bidding will continue during our live auction in SLH. Click on the links below to view the auctions. Winners will be notified via email and may pay via credit card (PayPal) or live at the event. You need not be present to win (just be willing to enter a huge maximum bid!)
Please NO umich.edu or med.umich.edu emails when bidding (MCIT spam filter problems)! Confused about our proxy bidding system? Click here.
The auction categories are below.
NOTE: Internet Explorer may not work. ALSO, please avoid using any umich.edu email addresses if you have an alternative option (i.e. gmail). In the past, MCIT spam filters blocked emails and you may not get emailed when you win or are outbid. This is not a problem currently, but may occur once site volume increases!
