ABOUT THE AUCTION
In lieu of our popular, in-person annual fundraiser, Neverland Ball, we are hosting a two-week, virtual auction in April as an opportunity for arts, sciences, and education supporters across the country to help raise money for all Inspire programs. The Inspire Virtual Auction will run from April 10th through the 25th. Auction items include local and international vacation getaways, jewelry, art pieces, winery and brewery tastings and tours, signed books and albums, and MORE. Stay tuned to the auction page, as new items will be added continuously until bidding opens on the 10th at 12:00 AM. All proceeds from this event will go directly toward improving the lives of young people in Northern California and beyond through essential Inspire Programs and our campaign to build a new, state-of-the-art campus that reflects the talents of the students we serve and the quality of education provided at Inspire. The auction website is live NOW, and you can explore items, set reminders when it’s time to bid on your favorite items, and donate directly to Inspire programs at https://inspirechico.news/2021-auction.
WEEKLY RAFFLE DRAWING
We will be hosting a weekly raffle drawing for $100 gift cards to various stores, swag items, and other prizes every Friday, beginning on March 12th and ending on April 23rd. During this time, each dollar donated to Inspire programs through the auction website will earn you an entry into the weekly raffle. For example, if you donate $100, you will received 100 entries into the raffle, which will be valid through April 23rd! Donate to any of our programs at https://inspirechico.news/auction-donate.
DONATE ITEMS TO THE AUCTION
While we already have dozens of incredible auction items, we are still seeking donations from artisans, musicians, businesses, and beyond to make the biggest impact we can. By contributing an item to our auction before April 10th, you will have access to a range of marketing benefits, including social media, website, and newsletter acknowledgment with nationwide visibility. Additionally, any investment in a naming opportunity (see “Other Ways to Support Inspire” section below) by March 30, 2021, will earn you recognition as a sponsor of the April auction on social media, our website, and beyond.
