Gift certificates, jewelry and other valuable items were featured in the Chinese auction at Divas’ Day Out. Visitors purchased a $1 ticket or 20 tickets for $15, and all of those funds will go directly to Girl Power 2 Cure‘s mission to end Rett Syndrome.
Our fun Divas’ Day Out event featured all kinds of activities, entertainment and shopping in support of this charity working to raise awareness and research funds to cure Rett, a sad disorder that robs girls of their motor skills, like the ability to walk and talk. It is the most severe form of autism. Thankfully, scientists have proven it can be reversed, so there is great hope that a cure is just around the corner.
To support this nonprofit, which is based on Amelia Island, we donated a portion of every sale at the event, every entry fee, and all of our Chinese auction sales from the items belwo. The following items — and more! — were up for grabs:
