Thumbs up MH CHARITY- Let the Bidding Begin

Here's the Gist:

Fellow Motohoustonians have volunteered themselves and various services or items for other members to bid on. The resulting funds will be collected and turned over to a pre-selected charity.

The Auction

The MH community has until midnight, Thursday, November 6th to place their bids.

These are the peeps you can bid on. Some have noted whether they are married/single/committed(..ish). Please use common sense when voting. This is supposed to be fun, but I'm not responsible for any black eyes or bullet holes.

You can bid on more than one person; you can also bid even if you're in the auction. For example, I could bid on Mala if I wanted to.

You can bid as much as you want, but it has to go up at LEAST 0.50 (fiddy cents). Please send your bids via PM to Scatter only. Otherwise, this will become way too confusing.

The Reveal

We'll meet @ 7.30pm Saturday, November 8th to reveal who won what and the grand total we've raised for charity.

Joe's Crab Shack
610 & Kirby

2621 South Loop West
Houston, TX 77054
(713) 666-2150


This will be your chance to pick up physical items won in the auction; those who win an "intangible," such as a person or service, will be presented with a voucher.

TIMELINE:
  • Bidding will stop @ midnight, Thursday, November 6th
  • Winners will be announced @ 7.30pm Saturday, November 8th at Little Woodrow's
(we realized we scheduled this as the same time as the blood drive, so we changed the time and are meeting at a grille instead of a park)


The Charity

We’ve decided to work with Houston’s Adopt-a-Family organization. They still have the info for 2007 posted on their website, but if you’d like to visit it: http://www.houstonchildrenscharity.org/adaf.html
