Auction Time! Win Something Fantastic While Supporting Some Awesome Kids!

out of the blue villa
A stay at Out of the Blue villa is one of many items up for grabs at this year’s auction.

I love, love, love a good auction, and one of my favorites is happening soon … but you all can get in on the action now!

The 30th Annual Gifft Hill School Auction will be held on Saturday, March 5th at the Westin. The online auction, however, is up now. There are a few ways to get in on the action. We’ll get to that in a bit…

I’ve been teaching a web design elective course at the school since September, so I know firsthand how great these kids are and how they need all of our support. Did you know that roughly 70 percent of the kids receive scholarships? That’s why this auction is so important. So please, if you are able, join me in supporting these kids. Here’s how

1. You can buy a Golden Ticket.

Golden Tickets can be purchased for $100 and only 200 will be sold. Only one Golden Ticket winner will be chosen and that person will be able to choose whatever prize they’d like from a list of 21 pretty fantastic items. Prizes range from a seven-night trip to Africa to tickets to see Adele in New York City to a variety of seven-night stays here on St. John. When you buy the golden ticket, just choose whatever prize you want. And if you win, it’s yours. Click here to see the full list of items. 

2. You can bid on items during the live auction – either in person or by proxy.

The remaining items will be up for auction as well. If you are able to attend the event in person, great. You can bid on them during the live auction. If you cannot attend the event, simply bid on the items online and you will have a designated proxy bidder at the auction participating on your behalf. It’s a win-win for everyone!
