2015 "Stars at Night" Auction for the RCI Foundation and the RCI Foundation Canada!

The 2015 annual convention is approaching quickly, and it is time for the RCI Foundations to begin planning the annual fundraising auction and reception.

Whether you are a first timer or a long-time supporter, we encourage you to consider what popular and/or unique item(s) you might donate to one of the foundations to support their good works. Popular items in the past have been travel-related (timeshare stays, beach houses, trips, etc.); tickets to popular sports or theatrical events; jewelry; household décor; tools of the trade; art; hunting trips or related items; sports memorabilia; and connoisseur spirits and cigars. We also appreciate RCI members, friends, and family members donating handcrafted items they have created. Several one-of-a-kind member creations in the past (remember the mouse trap bank and the slate clock, the first of many member-created items?) have resulted in spirited bidding and frankly, a lot of fun. Also, should you wish to contribute but not have time to shop, we will happily accept cash donations and do your shopping for you. Are you ready to help? Click the link to the right entitled "2015 Auction Contribution Form" to get started. We look forward to receiving yours completed! Remember, the convention is early in 2015 so the donation dates are earlier than usual—please don’t let them get away!
