Virtual Silent Auction Coming Soon
Staying Connected is holding its’ first ever Virtual Silent Auction on April 16-23, 2021. The response to our request for donated items has been truly incredible! Donations include both Goods and Services from many Sun City Clubs and Groups as well as from the local community. There is something for everyone; Golf lessons from our Sun City Golf Professionals, a one-night stay at the Bluffton Inn including breakfast, pet themed gift baskets from the Dog and Pet Lovers Club, handcrafted items, and art pieces from some of our many talents residents, antiques, Spa treatments, Gift cards and even a basket of lottery scratch offs. This is only a sample of the many items featured in our Auction.
2020 was a difficult year for so many of us and Staying Connected was able to continue to reach out to neighbors unable to venture out of Sun City. We also played a major role in helping folks without internet and email access to get registered and arrange appointments for them, so they could receive COVID vaccinations. While our services were curtailed and fundraising events were unable to be held because of the pandemic, our expenses remained pretty much the same. The funds we raise from this auction will go a long way to helping us reach a comfortable level of funding for 2021.
