Going Once, Twice, Sold!
When the Sundance 2019—Rainbow XXXII: Ultraviolet Disco Day-Glo Sunrise kicks off on Saturday, August 31, with its auction night, over 600 fantastic items are up for bidding.
Where do they come from? Well, the live auction includes cruises, artwork, fine jewelry, accommodations, dining experiences, and many major gifts come from wonderfully generous businesses and individuals. The same is true for the enormous collection of collectibles, artwork, restaurant gift certificates, clothing, and more for the silent auction.
Since this is our local hero edition of Letters, please be a hero and donate some valuable artwork, jewelry, cool memorabilia, new home décor objects, or other enticing items to the event. You’ll love seeing “From the collection of…..” up on the item signs.
All you have to do is drop by and fill out a form—or download one to fill out/drop off—to let us know what you are donating.
On auction night, be the proud donor of much-desired items—and an enthusiastic bidder for replacement goodies. The silent and live auctions are accompanied by a cocktail buffet and open bar.
Many of the items auctioned at Sundance come from donors such as you: exceptional new items like artwork, furniture, jewelry, clothing and accessories, travel and accommodations, fine dining experiences, professional services, and much more. Each item will be prominently displayed in a bold, professional manner with individual or business names highlighted. In an effort to make the Sundance 2019 Auction as exciting as possible, we will bundle some of the items. We ask that used items be limited to genuine antiques and collectibles.
For your tax records, a thank-you letter acknowledging your contribution will be sent after the event.
The Sundance Auction will be held at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center on Saturday, August 31; this year it’s one hour earlier—from 6-9 p.m. It includes a cocktail buffet, an open bar, the silent auction, the live auction featuring auctioneer Lorne Crawford, and DJ Stephen Strasser.
The deadline for inclusion of items in the auction is Thursday, August 29. Your donation goes a long way toward helping us achieve CAMP Rehoboth’s goals. We will arrange to pick up your item, or you can drop it by CAMP Rehoboth at 37 Baltimore Avenue, whichever is more convenient for you. ▼
