Popular Boots and Bling event takes to the Internet October 17

2020 Boots and Bling virtual event

Thanks to Covid-19, the Durham Hospital Foundation has re-designed this year's Boots and Bling fundraising event so that you can party at home and enjoy the same things offered in previous years.

Gather your BFF’s for a house party! Register for curated beer-tasting and auctions and watch the fun unfold broadcast live on You Tube, from 6:30 pm on October 17.

All your favourite Gala events are back, including craft beer-tasting, led by Charles MacLean, silent auction with items to display a new 'Buy It Now' feature, and dance party featuring the music of 8 Second Ride.

Bidding on many great items in the online auction will begin two weeks before the event. Donations for the Fund A Need event will also be accepted in advance or during the event.

You must be registered to bid. To register, visit the Boots and Bling site, go to the Givergy Silent Auction webpage and register. Click on Silent Auction Items in the menu on the left of the page, scroll through the list and tap on the item you want to bid on. At the bottom of the page beneath the photo and description it will show you the current winning bid and the next minimum bid you need to make. Enter your bid amount into the field at the bottom of the page and click 'Place Bid' (if you are not registered you will need to register your details). Credit card information is required before placing your first bid.

To make a donation, choose your level, enter the amount you want to donate into the field at the bottom of the page and click 'Donate Now'. As with bidding you will need to be registered on the system.

The auction will close at 8:30 pm. There is a countdown clock on the item page showing how long is left until the item closes.

Host for the evening of fun-tastic entertainment is Layne, The Auctionista.

Money raised at Boots and Bling will support the Durham Hospital and help purchase a new ultrasound scanner.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
