On February 10, 2013, my team (Team Peloton) and I will be participating in Cycle for Survival to raise money to help find a cure for cancer. We've committed to raising at least $1,000 and I thought a virutal bake sale would be a great way to raise some of the funds. I hope you will all mark your calendars for our virtual bake sale!
The bake sale will begin at 7am EST on Wednesday, January 23, and will close at 9pm EST on Saturday, January 26.
Bake Sale Rules and Logistics
Please remember that all donations from this bake sale will go directly to my team's Cycle for Survival efforts to benefit the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. You will be supporting a great cause and helping to make a huge difference in the lives of many.
Bidding will begin on Wednesday, January 23 at 7am EST and end on Saturday, January 26 at 9pm EST.
Each item will have a minimum bid of $25. All buyers can then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with a bid of what they would like to purchase. To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at email@example.com. Any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed. Only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.
Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9pm EST to submit their bid for the auction.
I will be updating the current bids at the bottom of the bake sale post throughout the auction so that you can see the current high bid. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.
All winners will be announced a few hours after the bake sale has closed. Each winner will then donate the specified amount to my team's Cycle for Survival fundraising page. The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that timeframe the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.
A preview of the goodies will be posted on Monday, January 21st so that you have time to look over your options and get ready to bid on your must-have items.
Please remember that this bake sale is to help raise money for Cycle for Survival.
I hope you'll come back on the 21st to see what goodies we'll have for auction!
