4 Ways You Can Help Make RPEC’s Auction a Success

color lotus no backgroundThe annual Richmond Peace Education Center Dinner & Auction is coming again this year on November 7th and, as always, it needs the help of all Peace Center members.  There are 4 ways you can help…

  1. Solicit items for the auction from friends, and businesses you know.  It can be a service, a gift certificate, an item…anything, really.  Let your imagination run wild.
  2. Donate an item for the auction.  Do YOU have a service or a treasure that you can donate to RPEC for this?  Email items@rpec.org to let us know.
  3. Buy a ticket ($45) or a table (8 tickets for $360). Even if you can’t come, buy a ticket and donate it back to RPEC who will give it to one of the youth in our programs who provide a lot of the help that night.
  4. Attend the auction and bid on items.  This is a great way to put a dent in your holiday shopping or get that special getaway for yourself and someone special.

And here’s why you should do this: The auction is carefully planned so that the proceeds from the sale of tickets covers all the auction expenses if we sell out the room.  This allows for every dollar bid on items to go directly to support the Peace Center’s programming.  This is a big deal!  The auction provides over 15% of RPEC’s total budget for the year.

So think of what you can do.  We need all RPEC members to, in at least one of the 4 ways.  Call the office at 232-1002 if you have questions or need some guidance.

And thanks for all you do.
