North Shore Civic Ballet Company's Annual Online Spring Auction Begins 5/11
The North Shore Civic Ballet Company's (NSCB) annual online spring auction kicks-off May 11 and continues through June 1. The nonprofit dance company is seeking donations of gift cards and gift certificates for a range of services and products or contributions. All proceeds raised will be used to support new choreography, costuming, scholarships, and special educational projects.
Individuals and businesses are invited to donate gift certificates or gift cards for hotel stays, car detailing, restaurants, spas, massages, photography retail stores, craft items, luxury services and more. Other suggestions are tickets to sports events, concerts, performances, theatres, museums and additional unique experiences.
A contribution of an item to the auction benefits the buyer and the donor. Retail establishments will get wide exposure. For example, artisans making jewelry or wearable art will also benefit from having their work shown on the auction site. All items for sale will be professionally photographed and displayed on the site. Services and gift certificates will be generously described.
Drop off donations at the NSCB's home at the Marblehead School of Ballet, 115 Pleasant Street in Marblehead, or call 781-631-6262 to schedule a pick-up
Bidders will find a range of items to purchase such as weekend getaways, restaurant gift certificates, hotel packages, amusement park tickets, museum passes, theatre tickets, concerts, food packages, dance certificates, unique experiences, and much more.
