Dallas County Dental Society Foundation has partnered with the online platform Charitybuzz to help raise funds for our charitable activities.
Charitybuzz is an internet company that raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online charity auctions with celebrities and brands. Auction experiences include music, entertainment, business, politics, sports, art, fashion and other industries.
The website allows for bidders all over the world to bid on items that have been posted—fundraising is not restricted to the community in which the item is offered. The site auctions unique experiences as well as items.
We encourage DCDS members to visit charitybuzz.com to experience the plethora of auction items that are listed, but also to obviously bid on those which will benefit the Dallas County Dental Society Foundation. Charitybuzz specializes in unique experiences or items that are valued at $1000+, but will accept lower valued items if they are in high demand or are very unusual.
We urge DCDS members to consider contributing an item or an experience that will allow DCDS Foundation to receive a sizeable return if the item sells. Here’s some examples of items that would do well on this auction:
- Works of art
- Sports memorabilia
- Valuable jewelry
- Antiques such as vintage furniture
- Tickets to soldout concerts or sports games (can be local or out of area)
- A weekend at a vacation home or timeshare
- A meeting/dinner/golf outing arranged with local or national celebrities.
- Group dinner at a very hard to get restaurant (can be local or out of area)
In early January, DCDS Foundation will have several active auction items listed that have been donated by a member. These items can be viewed at https://www.charitybuzz.com/support/5604.
