Community Shares of Colorado‘s Online Silent Auction Goes Live Today
DENVER – October 18, 2021 To continue celebrating its 35th anniversary, Community Shares of Colorado is hosting its first standalone virtual silent (http://bidpal.net/csc2021) starting today through October 21. Some of the auction items include a pizza party for 15 children and parents at Anthony’s Pizza and Pasta, a gourmet meal cooked in your home by Denver chef Jennifer Osheroff (which includes all the food), a sampler box of food by The Women’s Bean Project, and a night at Cherry Creek’s boutique hotel Halcyon.
“I believe that we, as a community, should support local nonprofits, such as Community Shares, because it’s the right thing to do,” said John LeBel, CEO and president of Anthony’s Pizza and Pasta. “By supporting these nonprofits, we are being socially responsible and will raise much needed funds for the more than 100 Colorado-based nonprofits that Community Shares supports.”
