Santa Claus Fund Online Auction Website

Santa Claus Fund Online Auction Website

The Medicine Hat News Santa Claus Fund is having an online auction starting today and finishing on December 16th. I previously posted about their new website and now we have an online auction version of their site as well. It seems like more and more organizations and charitable services in the city are taking the plunge and going digital, sometimes exclusively; however, you still have to come pick up your items at the Medicine Hat News building – in person!

There’s tons of items up for bidding (over 50) by many sponsors all throughout the city. Many local companies and businesses have graciously donated services and inventory to the Santa Claus Fund in hopes of making money for the organization. As many know, the Santa Claus Fund gives back to local needy families and individuals during the Christmas season, but also throughout the whole year. As with any online auction, be weary of those last minute bidders that snatch up your items!

At the end of bidding and if you are the winner of any item(s), you are able to pay via PayPal, or you can pay with cash/debit/credit card in person when you pick up your item(s) at the Medicine Hat News building.

Risk Tournament

Risk Tournament

Recently launched, Game for Good is a website and non-profit volunteer organization (if you can call it that) whereby, true to the name, games are played for the good of something. In the case of this event, a Risk tournament will be taking place under the Medicine Hat News Santa Claus Fund. This has been set-up, facilitated, organized and promoted almost exclusively by Jace Anderson, voted the #1 Medicine Hat tweep earlier in the month by Medicine Hat Media. I know, I didn’t list them in numbers, but I think most people would agree he is the number one Medicine Hat Tweep anyways, especially after this. Also involved was Derek Gavey, who set up the website, he is a known commentator on Medicine Hat Media, and was also mentioned in the top Medicine Hat tweeps post.

Anyways, back to the matter at hand: RISK! For those of you that don’t know what Risk is, wait, never mind, Google it, why don’t you know what Risk is? There is no entry fee; however, there is a minimum donation of $20 that goes directly to the Santa Claus Fund and you will be issued a tax deductible receipt. The winner of the tournament will take home a nice $200 (including bragging rights) as well as possible other prizes to those who register early or even show up. The tournament will be taking place December 5th at 9:30AM, at the Cultural Centre and you need to register before December 1st.

There’s been several companies and businesses around the Hat that have either sponsored a table (money donation) or donated some goods and services for the tournament. These include Bean There! Roasting, Classic Construction, and Accessible Accessories so far on the docket. There is still sponsorship spots available if any business or organization is out there reading this.

More information can be found in the Media Release (PDF). I’m sure Jace will comment here if he has anything to add.
