We had a few items that did not sell at our event, and in efforts to continue our fundraising initiative, we have decided to create an Online Silent Auction on Facebook. We are hopeful that this will allow us to sell these items that were so generously donated, while also allowing people who were not able to make the event feel apart of this amazing thing – Ref4Rett!!
The 8 items available are located in the “Online Silent Auction” Photo Album. Bids can be made in the comment section of each picture. Minimum bids for all items is $20.00 and subsequent bids increments a minimum of $1.00.
Please feel free to share this new with your friends!
