bake sale rules

Bake for DANA! will be held on Monday! Hooray!! I am so excited. Please tell your friends!

The bake sale kicks off Monday at 8 am EST, so I want to review the rules and logistics for the event.

(sorry for the underlining)

Once I post all of the items up for sale, if you want to make a bid, e-mail me: tosha25italia@yahoo.com with a bid amount for the item you are interested in purchasing. Each item has a minimum bid of $20 and all quantities for each item should be clearly marked in the description.

An official bid must be emailed, thus any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed. Only e-mailed bids will be considered official.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until midnight Tues EST to submit their bid. Throughout the day I will update the post with the highest bid for each item. Keep on bidding!

If by the end there is a tie of bids for a particular item, (for instance, three people bid $50 for an item), then I will draw those names from a hat and have a random winner for that item.

Once a reader has won the bid on an item they will then donate the specified amount directly to my Dana Farber page. Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.

Please remember that all proceeds from this bake sale go directly to cancer research for Dana Farber. You will be supporting a great cause and are helping to save lives!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the Bake Sale and get excited! There are a ton of awesome things to bid on, and hopefully we’ll be able to raise lots of money for a great cause. I appreciate your participation and consideration!

A HUGE thank you to all of the bakers and donaters, who made this event possible! I am forever grateful for your generosity!

Good luck!
