BFO Durham ONLINE Silent Auction 2020
So much has changed recently with the Covid 19 pandemic challenging our daily routines and sense of normal. This is nothing new for those familiar with BFO where a new normal is what the programs and facilitators are assisting those dealing with loss, try to achieve.
For the first time our annual Fundraising Dance (with raffles and silent auction) has had to be cancelled. With social gatherings off the table for this year a few of our members felt there had to be some way to assist because the tragedy of loss does not stop just because there is a pandemic.
Thankfully, even with the economic challenges of the shutdown, our sponsors came through and provided items for our first ever online auction. It does not match the exhilaration of spending an enjoyable evening with our BFO-Durham friends as we enjoy dancing, eating good food, and eagerly checking the silent auction lists to see how we stand, but we hope that this Online Silent Auction will allow us to raise some much needed funds to help BFO Durham be there for those in need.
We can’t emphasize enough our appreciation for the dedication of our sponsors as well as the individual donations under such difficult circumstances. With businesses shut down and a lack of a clear path forward it speaks to the quality of people we are so lucky to have in our community.
Our auction is now live and will be available until 5pm on Sunday October 18th 2020.
