Here’s just a little sneak peak at Out of the Box 2013 in Seattle:
And below is a message that just went out to e-news subscribers. We’re so excited about the auction!
Today is the day! Over 200 guests will be arriving at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest’s Seattle gala auction at 6pm (PST), and the Out of the Box online opens at the exact same time!
Just think, as Seattle guests are perusing auction items and placing bids, you can do the same thing on your computer!
You can even donate toward the Veterinary Clinic at the same time paddles are being raised in Seattle.
To connect those at a distance even more with our Seattle event, we’ll send you the link to the video that guests at Bell Harbor will be watching, as they are watching it, at 9:00pm PST. We’ll be watching the online auction and can update the auctioneer in real-time with online donations being made.
I hope you’ll join the fun, and raise your virtual paddles high!
You can also follow the Seattle Out of the Box auction through photos and posts on Facebook throughout the evening.
Consider celebrating Audrey Hepburn’s birthday today, and place your first bid on this painting of Audrey by Spazy Art.
The artist donated the piece after finding out about the auction through the pre-auction Green Day tickets. Don’t forget, the online auction also features a guitar signed by Green Day members:
Those are just two of the amazing auction items available for online bidding. There’s something for everyone – from art, to gift certificates, to exotic getaways. We JUST added a new amazing getaway to an ecolodge in Ecuador!
Bidding on all online items ends Monday, May 6th at 6:00pm.
Out of the Box 2013 was made possible by auction committee members Pam Lehnert, Felicity Wood, Connie Robertson, Julie Harding, Patti Sims, and Annie Norris, as well as many, many event volunteers.
Big thanks to celebrity host Charlotte Ross:
You can bid on a visit to Paramount Studios with Charlotte!
