Welcome to our auction! Thanks for stopping in.
We're not employees or volunteers of Dane County Rape Crisis Center. We're just Dane County residents who felt like we needed to do something to help when we read the following message from RCC: "On November 30, we learned that the Sexual Assault Victim Services program funding (SAVS) statewide has been cut more than 40% for 2012.
Rape Crisis Center is taking a devastating cut of $37,692 from the amount we requested to support our work in 2012 -- 6% of our budget for the year." --http://danecountyrcc.org/index.php
On 12/21/2012 in the Wisconsin State Journal, it was reported that a minimal amount of the statewide budget was restored. The statewide cut, however, still hovers at just under 30%. Fundraising is needed.
In order to encourage direct donations to Rape Crisis Center, we are hosting A Spark for RCC! online auction.
The auction will open for bidding on 4/22 at noon and will close on 4/29 at noon. Winning bidders will be asked to donate 100% of their high bid directly to Rape Crisis Center. RCC will notify us when a donation is made and we'll prepare your item(s) for pickup at Rape Crisis Center in Madison. Gift cards/certificates will be mailed. For other items, should you need shipping, it is available. Winner to pay actual shipping costs.
Please enjoy browsing our auction beginning 4/16. New items added daily until auction open.
Beginning April 22nd, if you see an item or service that appeals to you-- please bid. Please bid generously. It's all for Dane County RCC!
We hope this helps increase donations to Rape Crisis Center during these trying times.
Let's spark donations for Dane County Rape Crisis Center!
