Bake Sale Auction – Rules and Logistics

It’s almost time for the Auction to begin.

The bake sale kicks off Friday the 10th at 9am EST, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up on the rules and logistics and all that fun stuff just to keep it fair. I know how excited everyone is, including me, so I want to have a clear picture in your head of how this is going to work so you can be at your computers ready to begin.

First of all I want to remind everyone that all proceeds from this bake sale go directly to Pet Rescue by Judy. You will be supporting a great cause and saving lives of animals.

I’m sure many of you are very curious how this Bake Sale Auction is going to work. On Friday, Feb 10th at 9 am est. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid listed below it. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail this address ( jen@milesforacure.com ) with a bid of what they would like to purchase. Each bid must be made in $2 or more increments from the opening bid.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at jen@milesforacure.com any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9:00 pm EST to submit their bid for that day’s auction. Throughout the day I will update the post with the updated bids.  I am hoping the updates will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.

If by the time I close the auction there is a tie of bids for a particular item, lets say three people bid $40 for some cookies, then I will draw those names from the hat and have a random winner from that bid.

Once someone has won the bid on an item they will then donate the specified amount to the website link sent to you or you can bring a cash or check with you when you pick up your items. Then the baker will make your treat and you can pick up your purchase at the Pet Rescue by Judy store at the Oviedo Mall on Sunday the 12th from 1:00 pm until 4:45 pm.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding the Bake Sale Format. I am really excited for this adventure and know it will be a success!!

Happy Bidding

Keep checking back more items will be added soon.

Happy Shopping

Passing $11,000

Part of the Team in Training program consists of fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  This can actually be a really fun part and can be just as rewarding as crossing the finish line.  Raising funds for such an amazing cause is very gratifying.  My goal for this year, October 2009 to October 2010, is to raise $15,000.  On Monday after the bake sale, I surpassed the $11,000 mark. Thank You!

 

Last night we had another one of our fun fundraisers.  I want to say thank you to Shannon for all of her hard work putting it together.  The fundraiser was held at Urban Flats.  For a specified donation we were able to enjoy great wine and flatbreads. 

It was great to catch up with past teammates and to see some of our current team members in normal clothes (other than their workout gear).  We had lots of fun.  Then to top the evening off there were raffles and I won one.  That rarely happens.

Below are some pictures of the evening.  Hopefully next time a few more of you can join us or maybe this will give some more of you fundraisers an idea for your fundraising.

 

Happy Fundraising!

One of the sweetest ladies in the world made this wonderful Jelly for us from mayhaws.  I think you may have to be a southerner to know what a mayhaw is, but take my word for it, it is fantastic.  If you are one of my Texas friends you will know exactly whose kitchen this came from and I know you will want this. You are bidding on one jar of Mayhaw jelly (pictured on the right). This item can be shipped anywhere in the U.S.

 

Peach Jam

Words cannot describe these cupcakes.  Cupcakes and pancakes have sort of become a team theme.  We run and somehow usually wind up at a pancake or cupcake shop.  I think that might be why everyone chooses to be on our team.  But these cupcakes have topped every cupcake I have ever tried and Coach Janice and I are quite the cupcake connoisseurs’.   You are bidding on one dozen red velvet cupcakes.  I am sorry to the rest of America because these sweeties cannot be shipped.  These cupcakes are only available to those living in the Orlando area and I will deliver them to you.

Bake Sale Rules and Logistics

Get Ready, Get Set, It’s Time to Bid!

Well actually the bake sale kicks off Monday at 8am EST, but I wanted to give you guys a heads up on the rules and logistics and all that fun stuff just to keep it fair. I know how excited everyone is, including me, so I want to have a clear picture in your head of how this is going to work so you can be at your computers ready to begin.

First of all I want to remind everyone that all proceeds from this bake sale go directly to the fundraising efforts of Sam (my husband) Christi (my sister) and myself benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You will be supporting a great cause and are aiding in saving lives here.

Before moving on I want to reemphasize why I do this.  It is not to contiuosly beg my friends for the money and I hope that is never what you feel, but as we speak I have a friend fighting for his life.  He needs a miricle to beat this cancer overtaking his body.  I am tired of losing family and friends to cancer.  So through your help we can make a difference. 

Now back to the auction…

I’m sure many of you are very curious how this Bake Sale Auction is going to work.  I am hoping for the best as we figure this out together. 

On Monday, June 14th at 8 am est. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $15.00. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail this address ( bakesale@milesforacure.com ) with a bid of what they would like to purchase.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at bakesale@milesforacure.com any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 10:00 pm EST to submit their bid for that day’s auction. Throughout the day I will update the post with the updated bids.  I apologize if this repeatedly sends my subscribers emails.  I do not ever want to bombard you with emails.  I am hoping the updates will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.

If by the time I close the auction there is a tie of bids for a particular item, lets say three people bid $40 for some cookies, then I will draw those names from the hat and have a random winner from that bid.

Once someone has won the bid on an item they will then donate the specified amount to the website link sent to you, (the website will either be for myself, my sister, or my husband – this is a joint effort). Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding the Bake Sale Format. I am really excited for this adventure and know it will be a success!!

**I want to thank Meghann Anderson for her amazing idea and for sharing her info with me to make this happen.

Happy Bidding
