At this summer’s Authentic Record’s Flood Relief Benefit, though, we tried a silent auction instead and raised a few thousand.
And so, for Monday’s big “A Holiday Benefit, Vol. II,” we’ve got a bunch of cool silent auction items. And you can bid on them online!
Just email me (benjamin at mtvi dot com) your item number, description and bid by 10:00pm ET on Monday, December 1, and I’ll be sure you’re in the running. I’ll let you know if your bid is a winner by no later than 12:01am ET on Tuesday, December 2. Payment can then be made via cash or check (payable to me). And please bear in mind that we’ll have to factor in additional shipping costs.
And of course, all proceeds benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping students ages 6-18 develop their writing skills.
