M-A on eBay: Online Auction for M-A Bidding Begins Today!

Original post made by Kelly Todd, another community, on Mar 22, 2009

Menlo-Atherton's Foundation for the Future is holding its second "M-A on eBay" auction; public bidding begins TODAY!!! You have until March 29th to bid on your desired items and there truly is something for everyone.

Up for bid are fabulous vacation homes, parties, community events, business services and sporting opportunities, in addition to very unique items offered by M-A parents and teachers. The difference from other school auctions? Everything is online, from the auction catalog on www.maauction.org, to the live auction for a week on eBay. There is no event and no cost to put on this auction - - every dollar raised supports M-A students and programs through the Foundation for the Future.

The success of the first year's auction was outstanding, raising $50,000, but, according to Trish Gump,, "it went beyond raising funds; the auction fills a void at M-A by offering chances for parents to come together at fun parties, and for community members and businesses to support our school. People are very generous and seem excited to be a part of this, no one turns us down!" As a result, the items are incredible, diverse and very fun.

For more information, please contact Michele Culhane or Trish Gump at mafoundation@yahoo.com with questions, or go online and view the auction catalog at www.maauction.org.
