Couture for a Cause 2015 - Silent Auction

Thank you for visiting our auction page! We are glad you are here. We're EXCITED to offer our silent auction ONLINE in addition to live at our event. Folks need not be present on November 7 to participate and can enter a proxy bid (the maximum amount they’d be willing to pay) to secure items.

Our annual fundraiser Couture for a Cause raises funds to support Activate Good's volunteer programs. Activate Good's mission is to activate volunteers to help charitable causes in our local community. Through our outreach efforts and online volunteer community, we help recruit and connect individuals, groups, and companies to fulfill volunteer needs with over 300 partnering nonprofits in the Greater Triangle.

The need for volunteers in the Triangle is greater than ever, especially in this challenging economy. Four out of five nonprofits rely on volunteers to operate. Volunteers we’ve connected to local charities have built homes for the homeless, mentored at-risk youth, used professional skills to create videos and websites to raise awareness, and so much more – boosting these causes’ efforts to tackle community issues and saving them thousands of dollars.

We invite you to participate in our auction to which numerous local businesses have generously donated items - dining, entertainment, shopping, spa services, and more!

*All proceeds from the auction support Activate Good's volunteer programs.*

Specifically, here are a few ways your money helps us:
• $25 helps obtain supplies for volunteer projects or Days of Service
• $75 keeps our volunteer matching website up for 3 months, so we can easily connect more volunteers to causes that need them
• $250 provides a mini-grant to a team of teens to carry out a service project they designed to tackle an issue they care about through our Activate Schools program

Thank you for your generosity and support!
