It actually was a pretty decent day. Today we started our bi-annual "teacup" auction for the American Cancer Society, we have at work for the employees to participate in. My morning was filled with setting it up.
When I first heard of a "teacup" auction, I visualized a lot of pretty teacups sitting out for auction.
That's not exactly how it goes. We take in donations from our employees and some suppliers, for the auction and I use recycled cardboard boxes from work to collect tickets. Tickets are sold and the buyer puts a ticket or tickets in the box for the item they are interested in.
This teacup auction had enough donations to have 57 different groupings, taking up 5 tables.
The donations were everything from live plants to items from Professional football and baseball teams.
Here are a few pics of some of the stuff turned in.
