Monday, December 13, 2021 – Monday, December 20, 2021
AAFSW Fun For Funds Fundraising Chair Joanna Athanasopoulos Owen, PhD would like to thank all the people who donated wonderful items to AAFSW’s first online auction as well as all the people who bid and bought all the donated items and made AAFSW’s first online auction a great success!
Early in November 2021, AAFSW invited its members as well as all the Livelines members and EFM businesses to advertise and receive a tax deduction by donating to AAFSW’s first online auction! This was a great opportunity to support AAFSW, which helps EFM businesses with free advertisement on the first of each month as well as the American Foreign Affairs Community with annual scholarships, financial assistantship to families in crisis, and the presentation of a range of cultural events.
Many people donated a great service (helping people with career planning, provide personal herbal or health workshop, etc.), an amazing experience (tickets to ballet or baseball games, lunch/dinner at an exclusive location, etc.), or a wonderful item (such as art, hand-made clothing, jewelry, carpets, etc.), all of which joined the incredible array of selected AAFSW Art and BookFair rare collection items.
AAFSW is truly grateful for all your remarkable donations and your robust bidding! AAFSW’s first online auction successfully concluded at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, December 20, 2021 — just in time to receive, wrap, and gift all your shopping for the holidays! AAFSW Fun For Funds Committee Chair Joanna Athanasopoulos Owen, PhD would like to thank everyone who contributed to the physical and digital organization and success of AAFSW’s first online auction, especially Nicole Spiridakis, Susan Lee, and all the AAFSW Art and BookFair volunteers, and hopes that you all had great fun supporting AAFSW and its great projects!
Don’t forget: Bid Often! Bid High! Bid Again! It’s good for the heart…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
