The Silent Auction runs October 29 - December 17, 2016

Final bids will be taken at the Jing Ying Holiday Party on December 17, 2016 (bidding ends at 4:00 pm).

We are taking donations until December 9. Not only will you help a great charity, you can also promote your business. Please view our Facebook Event page for up-to-date information (we've just started adding items to this web site). As soon as you make a donation, it will be put on display; so the sooner you donate, the longer our students and guests will be able to view your donation. We welcome your business cards and/or literature to make available to students/bidders.

Proceeds benefit the Serving People Across Neighborhoods (SPAN), a local organization that provides emergency food and financial services to families. The three main areas of assistance they provide are: prevention of evictions, prevention of utility disruption, and meeting medical or prescription needs.

A big thank you to our generous donors! We'll update listings and links to our donors as we get more information and more items. The following list of donations is a work-in-progress and does not reflect the donations we currently have.

We are also accepting non-perishable food and items such as toothbrushes for SPAN's pantry. For every item you donate, you will receive an entry into our door prize drawing.
