Dana Days – Our Third Annual Online Auction

Open for Contributions now until April 22nd

Winter is winding down, spring is just around the corner and it’s time to prepare for our third annual online auction.  We had so much fun last time, connecting with dhamma friends, offering creative auction prizes to others, all in the spirit of supporting Portland Friends of the Dhamma.  We welcome you to join us again this year!  

The idea is to create opportunities for the PFoD community and friends to spend time together while supporting the Dhamma Center at the same time.  Our goal is to offer at least 20-30 auction prizes to bid on, which will support activities and programs at PFoD.  

The auction will be held online from May 2-16, 2019.
Everyone is invited to donate an item, experience, or service to the auction, which other PFoD community members can bid on.  

Here are some fun ideas:

  • Offer art or craft lessons, or donate an item you created or built
  • Offer your sewing or gardening skill
  • Host a gourmet dinner party at your home
  • Provide babysitting for a parents’ night out
  • Donate a weekend at your beach house or mountain cabin
  • Offer a ride to the airport, housecleaning, pet sitting
  • The possibilities are endless.  Be creative!

If you are interested in donating an item, service or community building experience to this year’s auction and would like some help brainstorming or developing an idea, please feel free to contact our auction planning team leader at kristensaxton@yahoo.com

Please let us know the item or group experience you wish to donate by April 22nd, along with the estimated monetary value (we can help you with that too if you need).
We look forward to seeing the creative and fun ideas folks have to offer again this year.  Thank you for your support and participation!
