Live Auction Item 1: $500 Bono's Gift Cards/Bitty & Beau's Coffee Gift Basket
Over the next few days, I am going to introduce all of the live auction items at this year's fundraiser. Last year, the auction was as fun, competitive, and good as it has ever been and we hope to repeat that this year.
Before describing the item, here are some ways you can be a part of this important event:
- Tickets are $75/each: Purchase Them Here
- Table Captains pay $500 for a table and then recruit people to fill the seats: Purchase A Table Here
- Event Sponsorship (including a table of 8 and advertising on ATN social media) is $1,000: Become an Event Sponsor Here
- If you already know you are not in Jax on March 4: Donate to the event here
The live auction being introduced today is actually two items being combined together for the purposes of the auction. Bono's BBQ, one of my personal favorite restaurants in Jax, has donated 2-$250 gift cards along with 4 pints of barbecue sauce and some Bono's merchandise. That is $500 worth of barbecue, sides, and some of the best chicken wings in the city.
Bitty & Beau's Coffee is one of the coolest coffee shops in Jacksonville with incredible coffee, great smoothies, and delicious food. The first line of their "Our Story" page on their website reads, "As advocates for the value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, the Wrights have dedicated their lives to making the world a better place for their children and others living with disabilities."
If you live in Jacksonville, Bitty & Beau's is a must-visit coffee shop both because of the story and because of the coffee!
The minimum bid for the Bono's/Bitty & Beau's gift basket/card combo is $750 and it is well worth the price!
