Keeping the kids occupied this summer just got easier! Our Caring for Kids event May 5th, features an outstanding silent auction, and you can start the bidding online NOW. The Online Auction is jam-packed with entertainment the whole family will enjoy. Whether your idea of fun is a water park or Shakespeare in the park, there’s something for every taste and temperament. If you’re a spectator or active participant, we have tickets from A (American Airlines) to Z (the Zoo). If you’ve got game or just appreciate those who have it, you’ll find some outstanding sports memorabilia up for bid, including a Texas Rangers 2011 American League Championship ball signed by Texas legend Nolan Ryan.
Oh, the possibilities: take a trip on the Grapevine Railroad, take a dip at Schlitterbahn, or just take a nap with a handmade quilt. The ladies of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Dallas made and donated five beautiful quilts for this auction.
This is a great way to shop – not only are these items irresistible and tax deductible, every penny will go toward helping and healing the more than 250 deserving children in the Metroplex who have suffered abuse and abandonment – the children served by Nelson Children’s Ministries.
After the online auction closes, further bidding for the auction items will take place at the Caring for Kids fundraiser May 5th at the American Airlines C. R. Smith Museum in Fort Worth. [Note: We can bid on your behalf at the event through absentee bidding when you give us your maximum bid amount. Email Kristy.Simpson@lsss.org for specifics.]
