The great thing about this event is that anyone, anywhere, can bid and support the caring services Covenant Hospice provides,” said Rachel Mayew, development and communications manager with Covenant Hospice. We already have several covetable packages that we expect to be highly popular among participating bidders – an iPad Mini donated by Cox, a fishing trip and dolphin cruise from Olin Marler Charters, multiple beach stays courtesy of Southern Vacation Rentals, golf packages from Emerald Bay Golf Club, tickets to the Digital Graffiti event in Alys Beach and even a hot air balloon ride! All of these amazing items and experiences are available at a fraction of the retail value.” Additional auction items will include spa and massage services, artwork, jewelry, tickets to performing arts events, as well as gift certificates to local and national chain restaurants and retailers. The online auction schedule is as follows: Auction One, April 11-18; Auction Two, April 18-25; Auction Three, April 25-May 2; Auction Four, May 2-9. Each auction will feature different items available for bidding. Organizers are currently seeking additional items for the online auction. Businesses and individuals interested in making a tax-deductible donation of an item, gift certificate, professional service or condo stay should contact Rachel Mayew at (850) 428-0605 or rachel.mayew@covenanthospice.org.
