JAWS: CAMP 2016: Only you can make the JAWS Online/Onsite Auction a success

JAWS CAMP 2016 l 23 August, 2016
By Pam Moreland, JAWS Board Member

Give JAWS your gift cards, your collectibles
Your artwork yearning to be displayed on another coast
Donate treasured possessions that have value beyond belief
Send information on vacation rentals, tech gadgets and more to us
We will put these in the JAWS Online Auction to raise money
For our beloved nonprofit group
–With profuse apologies to Emma Lazarus and the Statue of Liberty
With fewer than 100 days before CAMP 2016, it is time to get serious about donations to the Online and Onsite Auctions.
We need your help to make this year’s auctions successful. After all, money raised by the auctions will help to underwrite JAWS programs.
Think Online Auction for high-end items, vacation rentals, services (from ski instruction to guided tours, from counseling and editing of your manuscript to vetting your podcast demo tape). If it’s too big to fit in a suitcase, then it’s perfect for the Online Auction.
Think Onsite Auction if you are coming to Roanoke, Va. Bring jewelry, clothing, accessories of all shapes and size (large earring are a must!). Books, small gadgets, foodstuff (if it won’t spoil), media-related swag, tchotchkes and more for the onsite auction. If it’s easy to pack or carry on to an airplane, then it is perfect for the Onsite Auction.
If you don’t know what to bring or what to donate, let’s talk. There are lots of ideas and lots of ways to participate. Even if you can’t come to CAMP, you can still donate stuff (and participate in the Online Auction).
Tickets to “Hamilton”? Perfect for the Online Auction.
Autographed copy of Amy Schumer’s new book? Perfect for the Onsite Auction.
Platinum Apple Watch? Perfect for the Online Auction.
$30 in iTunes Gift Cards? Perfect for the Onsite Auction.
Brand-new boxed board game for Game Night? Perfect for the Onsite Auction.
Adult Beverages? Wine Not! Perfect for the Online Auction OR the Onsite Auction. (You can share your successful purchase with your fellow JAWdesses.)
Contact Pam Moreland at goldenwheelcom@gmail.com or Meg Heckmanmheckman32@gmail.com with information about your donations. We will get back to you for the details, and any advice on which auction seems more appropriate.
The only limit is our imagination. Let’s talk and let’s get the bidding going.
