Online Rotary Auction Offers Inventive Items & Experiences

March 22nd, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

Would you be interested in your own private, reserved parking space at the Westfield Shopping Center for the next six months?  How about a private tour of the Queen Anne cottage; without having to wait in line; and a catered lunch would be included?  Is your high-school aged son or daughter looking to beef up their college resume with an activity like “Principal of the Day at AHS” or what about “Superintendent of the Day at AUSD”?
If any of these things appeal to you and you don’t want to cash in the family piggy bank to have to acquire them, then look no further than the “On-line auction” sponsored by the Arcadia Rotary club. Every year, the Arcadia Rotary club has an annual fundraiser that provides a bulk of the funds they need to continue in the service projects that they do.  At this fundraiser, they hold a silent auction with many valuable items being auctioned off to the highest bidder.
This year, it was decided to let the local community bid on some of these items by bringing the silent auction to the internet.  Now anyone can bid on these items from the comfort of their own computer screen.
You must hurry.  At press time, the auction is already open and will close on March 19th at 9:00am.
The Arcadia Rotary club is dedicated to providing service to the international, regional, and local communities.  This club specializes in supporting projects in Central Africa, Thailand, building orphanages in Tijuana, Mexico, and in supporting various Arcadia based senior and youth programs.  For more information on what Arcadia Rotary is and does, see www.arcadiarotary.org.

Consider some other biddable items like:

-A helicopter ride on the Pasadena Police department’s helicopter
-A chance to host your own Poker tournament at the famous Hollywood Park Casino
-Friday Night Super-Seat Tickets to the Hollywood Bowl (these type of tickets are already sold out!)
-Sit behind home plate at a Dodger game
-Lunch with a State Senator and Private Tour of the Capitol building
-A vacation at a Cabo San Lucas, all-inclusive resort (i.e., all food, beverage, alcohol, entertainment, accommodations, taxes, and tip included)
-Star Wars photo personally autographed by George Lucas
-Luxury Items
-Sports Memorabilia
-Gift Cards
-And so much more!
