Musings of a Marfan Mom

Danny’s Online Benefit Auction

| 0 comments

*This is a sticky post. It will be the first post on this page through the end of the auction on April 23rd.*

Danny’s Online Benefit Auction is finally here! This is the last in the series of fundraisers that members of our Marfan community have put on over the past 6 weeks or so to raise money for Danny and his family to attend the National Marfan Foundation conference in Chicago this summer. Additional funds raised past what is needed for their trip are going towards medical expenses: transportation, food, and accommodations for Sarah while Danny is in the hospital (he’s there currently with breathing issues & has a heart surgery scheduled in May).

Here’s how the auction works. Below you’ll see each item, a brief description, the current (or opening) bid, and where in the world bids are welcome from (US, US/Canada, or anywhere). Bids may be increased in $1 increments. To bid on an item, just fill out the Google form at the end. You must fill out the form separately for each item you wish to bid on. I will update this post as frequently as I receive bids. Winners will be notified on April 24th. If you have any questions, leave a comment on this post.

If you would like to donate directly to Danny’s account (as opposed to or in addition to participating in the auction), you can do that here.
