Brenda Novak's Jr. Diabetes Auction

Brenda's Online Auction for Diabetes Research

The 4th Annual On-line Auction for Diabetes Research is almost here! The auction starts May 1st and runs through May 31st, 2008. If you’d like to get involved, drop Brenda an e-mail. There are lots of ways to help.

My very first auction ran in 2005 and was a huge success. Together with my generous donors, which included some of the biggest and brightest stars in publishing, I raised $34,982, which went directly to research. In year 2, we did even better and raised $62,705. In year three, we more than doubled at $141,700. We’re definitely on a roll. The auction takes a full year to plan and pull off, but it’s a labor of love—for all the people who, like my son, suffer from diabetes. This year, we’ll be shooting for $150,000. Please help me make it happen.

Each year, I offer a fabulous prize package to the person who places the most bids over all (even if that person doesn’t end up winning a single item). This year, the prize package includes:

A brand new Camcorder (retail value of at least $1,000),
Your Name in My Next Book,
An autographed copy of TRUST ME (6/08--the first of The Last Stand series),
and Chocolate (lots of chocolate!)
So once the auction opens again in May, get in early and keep at it and the next winner could be you!

And this year, we have something new to offer: Raffle prizes! Get ready to buy some tickets for some amazing items.

If you have any ideas you think would make the auction bigger and more exciting, please let me know. Thanks to everyone who donated and to all who are shopping!

Here’s to making a difference…
