PFSC Junior Board’s Mini Silent Auction – June 23rd


On Saturday, June 23rd during club-ice, there will be a mini silent auction from 8:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m., to benefit the PFSC Jr. Board. Please be sure to peruse all the wonderful silent auction items that we have received from our community partners, PFSC and members (PFSC Jr. Board 6-23 Mini Silent Auction Items). Successful bidders need not be present to win but the lucky bidders will be confirmed by 10:30 a.m. and contacted the same day to arrange payment and delivery of the silent auction item.

If you cannot attend, no problem, please inform me of what item(s) # 1-8 you are interested in as well as your maximum bid, and I will bid on your behalf. For example, if you are interested in #3, Artistic Exploration for Two! (2 tickets to the Huntington Museum and a $50 CPK gift card valued at $100) and your maximum bid is $40; I would place the starting bid in your name and if no one else bids, the item is yours for the starting bid of $25. If, however, one or more members out bid you by the $5 increments, I would bid on your behalf until your max bid of $40 has been met.

Please alert me of your online bids either via email laura.davidson@pasadenafsc.com or text, at (213) 926-4665. I will check my emails up until 7:30 a.m. this Saturday. After that please let me know your updated bid and/or new bids by text by 10:00 a.m. and I will do my best to apprise you of the ongoing bidding.

Cash, check and credit card payments will be accepted and can be made either in person and/or online. If you have any questions, please contact me at laura.davidson@pasadenafsc.com or (213) 926-4665.

Thanks for your anticipated support of the PFSC Junior Board!
