Together, We are Giant! MdTL's Online Auction
One of the ways our Annual Auction has become so successful is that in addition to our big night, we launch an Online Auction a few weeks prior to the main event. This is an excellent opportunity not only to score some amazing items at incredible prices, but it also allows friends and family outside the immediate MdTL community to participate as well (anyone with internet access can bid!). The secret to success… we need EVERY family to bring in ONE donation. Simply ask for a donation from your favorite service providers - salons, restaurants, toy stores, etc... tell them that their donation is a great way to get their name out to local families. You'll be surprised at how many businesses will happily donate something. If every family can bring in one donated item, then we will be well on our way to having a successful and fun auction. "Home-grown" services and products can also be very popular, so if you have a special talent such as artwork, baking or arranging gift baskets, consider a donation utilizing your special skills!
To give you an idea of where to start, here are just a few of our popular categories (but we also welcome folks to think outside the box!):
