The Annual Styleforum Gives Ronald McDonald Charity Auctions – 2016
100% of proceeds Benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Of all the many traditions we all have, this is the one of which I am most proud. We are holding auctions for beautiful items (garments, shoes, and accessories) donated by retailers and designers, with 100% of the proceeds to go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (rmhc.org). The Ronald McDonald House helps to house and feed the families of children who must travel for medical treatment. During the holiday season, illness and being away from the comfort of home is especially stressful, and I love that we can help, in a small way, to alleviate some of this stress.
Last year, we raised over $16K over the course of the month. Please bid generously and help us surpass this. We have had some terrific items donated already, and we are expecting more donations to roll in as the season rolls in.
Each auction will take 24 hours, starting as close to 10 a.m. PST as I am able to make it, and ending the same time the next day. All auctions will start at 50% of the retail price. Please place your bids in the thread. I will contact the winners for all necessary details!
Again, all proceeds from the auctions go straight to the Ronald McDonald House. Help a family in need, and acquire beautiful goods. What could be better? Some of the participating vendors this year are:
- No Man Walks Alone – Eidos jacket (sport coat or hunting/field jacket) + a pair of Vass shoes. Auction winner can choose size and style for both items. We will throw a special bonus gift if bidders post pics of their own picks with their bid.
- eHaberdasher – four Benjamin Sartorial shirts
- The Armoury – a Ring Jacket suit. Perfect for business, and perfect for winning “best dressed” at your office party.
- Vanda – THREE custom ties! Because you need more custom, hand folded and rolled ties. What else is going to make that perfect knot around your impromptu necktie headband when you’re three sheets to the wind on NYE?
