*Have you fantasized about playing a pick up game with or against Shaquille O’Neal? What about scoring some 2011 Final Four ducats? Or an Audemars Piguet Lady’s Royal Oak Quartz Watch, featuring a stainless steel case, bezel set with 32 diamonds (retail value $9,200)?
One way to help make those fantasies become reality is to bid for them at the Jenesse Center’s online auction. But you better hurry because it closes tomorrow, Tuesday, May at 1:30pm Eastern.
The auction, by the way, is part of the Center’s 30th Anniversary Silver Rose Weekend, which was recently held from April 17-19. The auction provides supporters who were unable to attend the festivities, or those who still want to keep bidding, an opportunity to join the fun and place bids at http://www.charitybuzz.com/causes/53/catalog_items?page=1&per_page=10.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the families of the Jenesse Center and our holistic, comprehensive programs that nurture families victimized by domestic violence back to a place of mental, financial, physical and emotional well being.
In addition to the items mentioned above, you can also bid on a 3.6 carat emerald donated by the First Lady of Zambia.
By the way, the winning bid for the Shaquille O’Neal pick-up game comes with airfare and accommodations for 5 people, designer apparel and more. And with Shaq, LeBron and Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA playoffs, who knows, you could be playing with or against a member of the 2010 NBA World Champions!
“This year marks a major celebration for Jenesse and all the good work that our sponsors and supporters have enabled us to accomplish for the women and children who rely on our help,” Halle Berry, chair of the Jenesse Silver Rose Weekend said. “We are ready to celebrate 30 years of service and raise lots of money so we can continue for 30 more years helping families to heal, grow and thrive.”
