“Bidding Against Blindness,” our annual online auction, officially opened on Thursday, November 10 and closed on Wednesday, November 16. This year, we raised a total of $3,916! That is more than half the value of the items that were donated. Our goal was $3,100 and there were no items left without a bid!
All proceeds from the auction go to support the work of the Council to promote the dignity and independence of people in Wisconsin who are blind or visually impaired. These funds will help us to continue to provide low vision evaluations, rehabilitation visits, educational webinars, programs for schools, and a wide variety of adaptive products in our Sharper Vision Store.
We extend a heartfelt “Thank you!” to each person that participated - including those that donated items, that asked others to donate by sharing the auction link, and that placed bids. We a grateful for your involvement!
