Christmas is a time for giving, and on Sunday, December 8th, 2019, Bay City will be hosting their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and fund-raiser. With it comes an opportunity to support Child’s Play Charity, a 501c3 non-profit organisation offering on-line communities such as the Bay City Alliance an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment.
Activities will commence at 13:00 SLT and run through until 16:00 SLT, taking place at the Bay City fairgrounds. On offer will be:
- Live entertainment, music and dancing.
- A skating party.
- refreshments and fun.
Music will be provided by DJ GoSpeed Racer and live performers Melinda Mimi Carpenter and Wolfie Starfire.
Funds will be raised via a silent auction that will run from 13:00 through to 16:00 SLT on December 8th. Confirmed designers, artists, and brands who have donated to the auction include Cica Ghost, Apple Fall, Bryn Oh, Ape Piaggio, Lusch Motors, Remnant Ashbourne, Peony Sweetwater, ChuuAkamine, EG Aircraft, Trinity Yazimoto, Shergood Aviation, Evola Courtois, Java Motors, Christi Charron, Clothing Inventor, Faye Blackheart, Yavanna Llanfair, Fabiana Castello, Cindy Henusaki, Kennylex Luckless, Atomic Infinity, and Script Alchemi. Mitch Merricks will also be offering two Bay City parcels.
Bids are made via vendor. Should your bid be exceeded by another, your Linden dollars will be automatically refunded. You can, of course, increase your bid if you wish. Items will be awarded to the highest bid when the auction closes.
In addition, donation kiosks will be provided in the Fairgrounds for those who would like to support Child’s Play without participating in the auction.
The auction preview opened on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 for those wishing to take a loot at the available items ahead of the auction opening. In addition, a preview is available through the pages of the Bay City Post.
