A wonderful thing is being done over at Expresso Beans and on the David Blake website. A group of artists has banded together to raise money for the Community First Foundation to benefit the Aurora Victim Relief Fund in partnership with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. Please check out the info below, make some bids, and help some individuals in real need.
The purpose of this auction is to raise funds to support the victims and their families that were affected by the tragedy that took place on July 20, 2012, at the Century Theatres in Aurora, Colorado. All the proceeds from this auction will be donated to the non-profit organization, Community First Foundation-The Aurora Victim Relief Fund (http://www.communityfirstfoundation.org). The donation will be made in the name of Expresso Beans.
Community First Foundation, a longstanding community foundation, has established the Aurora Victim Relief Fund in partnership with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. This fund will only be used to meet the immediate and long-term needs of victims and their families and, as funds are available, the broad needs of those affected in the community.
The auction is now open for bidding and ends on September 1st at 9:00 p.m. PST. There are only two places where bids will be accepted, in this thread and on David’s blog (http://www.davidblakeart.com). For bidding purposes, EB’s and David’s blog’s date/time stamp will be noted. On September 1st, if multiple people place the same highest bid price with the time stamp of 9:00 p.m., each person will be given one chance to rebid and the highest bidder wins. Please note that some artwork have opening bid amounts and the winning bidder agrees to pay the shipping cost.
