Into Africa Auction is Going Virtual
P4P’s 2020 Into Africa Auction (IAA) will have a completely different look and feel in this year of COVID-19 fundraising. As much as we love getting together, sharing food, wine, conversation, and P4P’s mission with you in person, COVID-19 issues force us to cancel our traditional auction.
What, exactly, does that mean? It means this year you can attend, participate, bid, listen, learn and enjoy time with P4P in the comfort of your own home.
We are staging two auction activities: a multi-day silent bidding frenzy (although we know you, the frenzy won’t get hot and heavy till the last few hours) and a livestreaming event where you can watch our auction program, see video clips from Africa and bid on unique experiences and items in real time. Professional auctioneer Rose Backs will be with us for the livestreaming auction program, and she promises to keep the enthusiasm high and the bidding competitive and fun.
Mark your calendar now (details on how to register will be coming soon) 9:00 AM, September 28 – 5:00 PM, October 2: online bidding on silent auction items. 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM, October 1: P4P program and livestreaming bidding on unique experiences and items.
Check back here and be one of the first to register beginning September 1, 2020.
