ABLTC Foundation’s Virtual Silent/Live Auctions

ABLTC Foundation Holds Virtual Silent & Live Auctions

The ABLTC Foundation’s 13th Annual Silent Auction to benefit its mission of helping adversely affected groups of people statewide virtually, began on September 17th, and finishes up with a virtual LIVE EVENT set for tomorrow, Thursday, September 24, starting at 7:00 pm. The LIVE EVENT will run until 8:00 pm.

According to ABLTC Foundation’s General Manager Keri Salinger, funds raised through its annual signature event helps the most vulnerable people in the state. The Foundation achieves this through supporting programs, services, outreach and support to the elderly, disabled and neglected.

“Your generosity helps to protect the rights of mothers, fathers, grandparents and all elderly and disabled individuals who are victims of abuse, neglect and financial exploitation while receiving long-term care services in Rhode Island,” she explained.

The event was initially scheduled to happen during the spring. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and subsequent complications associated with social distancing and maintaining large crowds, the decision was made to make this event virtual.

Those who sign up for the virtual silent auction will have a chance to bid on unique baskets and packages, including gift baskets filled with gift cards to local merchants, restaurants, services and more. There are a few great raffle drawings and some “Buy Now” items as well, according to Salinger.

Participants who register and attend the LIVE EVENT are also eligible to win one of several door prizes through drawings throughout the evening. There will be Premium Auction items that will be up for bid during the LIVE EVENT, among them include: a Foxwoods Getaway for Two that includes a dinner and show of the winner’s choosing, a one-week getaway to Simpson Bay Royal Resort in St. Maarten (Dutch side) and a seven-day trip for four to Italy.

Besides entering the raffle and auction, people are also encouraged to make a one-time donation through the website. Salinger said any amount helps in forwarding the mission and reaching their financial goals.
