Going Once, Going Twice…

By Shamia Holloway March 15, 2013

Some people come for the food, others come for big-ticket bargains.
Whether it’s the exclusive tour of the The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer or the Washington Kastles VIP package, hundreds of food bank supporters attend the annual Blue Jeans Ball knowing they will be able to pick up some impressive items at great prices.
There are classes up for grabs:

  • Cooking
  • Kickboxing
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding

All items are donated, and through the course of the evening, the silent and live auctions translate into monetary support for the Capital Area Food Bank.
Golf games, museum visits, live performances, wine baskets… in an area like Washington, D.C., when individuals and businesses are asked to share what they can, it is truly amazing the types of wonderful items are offered up.
It’s my job to categorize the wonderful donations up for grabs, and it is impressive to see the variety and quality of donations.
There are hotel stays in cities such as Chicago, San Diego, Vail, Orlando, Paris, San Antonio, and New York City. Or if Costa Rica is more your speed, then you could bid on that stay!
Our artists’ one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork will also be on the auction block.
Beauty and spa treatments, sporting events and literally dozens of restaurant gift certificates will help us raise funds for the hungry. And we are still open to receiving donations until March 19!
