Fort Lauderdale, FL (September 30, 2010)–When one of Angela’s clients asked for a silent auction item for the Glam-A-Thon event raising money for women and cancer research, she got quite a response! “How about this Mercedes SL convertible?”Angela replied. Her client stood there mouth open and completely taken aback as she had no idea Angela would be so generous. Once the “shock” and excitement wore off, the two of them put their heads and hearts together, and within minutes these savvy women put their plan to raise thousands of dollars for this worthy cause in motion.
Angela wanted to do something more than just participate; her goal is to make an impact on the lives of the women the money is being raised for, while creating something fun and memorable that will take place during the Glam-A-Thon. Donating one of her cars for the silent auction (along with a year of complimentary service and three months of storage) is the perfect vehicle to achieve her goals.
Here is how it works. The lipstick-red Mercedes Benz convertible will be on site at two of the Glam-A-Thon events, October 7 at the Lipstick Lounge at the W Hotel Fort Lauderdale and on October 16 at America’s Backyard Post Party & Crowning the 2010 Queen. The bidding will begin at $0, so anyone can start the bidding, and the format will be silent auction style. All bidders must register to participate. Registration is FREE. Angela says, “There is no telling who, if anyone, will go home with this red convertible (as there is a reserve that has to be met). Hopefully we will raise money for a great cause and someone will get a fun car in the process.
