The Brenda Novak Annual Online Auction: A Cure For Diabetes
This year I've set up a fun gift set to auction off for Brenda Novak's annual online auction. From her website, below is a what this auction is all about.
Every year, in the month of May, I run my online auction for Diabetes Research. The auction takes a full year to plan and pull off, but it's a labor of love — for all the people who, like my son, Thad, suffer from diabetes.
My very first auction ran in 2005. It started small but the auction has grown by leaps and bounds every year since. Here are our totals to date:
2006 - $62,705
2007 - $141,700
2008 - $252,300
2009 - $270, 611
2010 - $303,000
2011 - $300,500
2012 - $319,000
2013 - $359,815
I couldn't have done this each year without my generous donors, who include some of the biggest and brightest stars in publishing. In total, we've raised more than $2 million!
There you have it! Here is my gift set for you to bid on, but don't stop there. Visit the home page to see all the fantastic items up for auction!
