Gift certificates, jewelry and other valuable items will be featured in the Chinese auction at Divas’ Day Out Sept. 19. 2015. Visitors can purchased a $1 ticket or 20 tickets for $15, and all of those funds go directly to Girl Power 2 Cure‘s mission to end Rett Syndrome.
Our fun Divas’ Day Out event features 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 donate a portion of some of the sales at the event, every entry fee, and all of our Chinese auction sales from the items below. The following items — and more! — are up for grabs:
