SATURDAY, MAY 23, 2020 – 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Over 600 bidders logged in to the Able Auctions website Saturday night to support a first-ever “joining forces to fight Covid19 charitable auction” raising $60,000!
Fighting Covid Together is an online charity auction event taking place at 7:00pm on Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. The event brings six charities together under one umbrella for one night, united in one cause – to spread the word about what charities supporting frontline workers and volunteers are up against during the COVID-19 crisis.
The concept for Fighting Covid Together came about when Howard Blank, known for mixing his love for philanthropy and his skill for hosting and auctioneering, wanted to do something to help all the charities he cares so much about. He turned to his friends at Able Auctions and event expert Tracey Wade and Fighting Covid Together took shape.
Fighting Covid Together will be unlike any other event and has never been done before. It will be live, upbeat, fast paced, and will help charities who need the public’s support right now. The format is simple and is based on Able Auctions’ proven track record in industrial auctioneering. It will consist of a live audio auction online for each of the six charities involved hosted by Howard Blank and Event Guests can bid in real time on items after viewing pictures and descriptions.
