Asphalt Green’s 2016 online auction is one for the record books. Thanks to your support, we raised over $74,000 benefiting our free community programs and scholarships.
We raised the stakes at this year’s auction, giving bidders the opportunity to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Hot items included a celebrity lunch with actor and director Ed Burns, a behind the scenes tour and training at Twitter’s headquarters in NYC, and tickets to several Tony-nominated Broadway shows. From November 30 through December 13, hundreds of people visited BiddingforGood.com to get in on the auction action.
Huge thank you to all our bidders and local businesses for donating items to the auction. Because of your generosity, we will be able to provide more kids the opportunity to participate in our free learn-to-swim Waterproofing program, Recess Enhancement Program (REP), and Community Sports Leagues. Plus, the proceeds will allow us to grant more athletic scholarships and expand offerings for our young-at-heart seniors.
