Phoenix Africa Auction – Charity Fundraiser

phoenix-convention-centers-10th-annual-facing-africa-auctionThe Facing Africa Auction is hosting it’s 10th annual auction on January 15th, 2016 at the Phoenix Convention Center. We are always excited to have this event because we usually raise about thirty thousand dollars that goes directly towards solving the problems currently facing Africa. There are always thousands of attendees at this specific event that come from all over Arizona including cities as far away as Lake Havasu, Flagstaff, and Tucson. This is one of our biggest auctions in the country and we always have a great time promoting because it also gives us a chance to educate people on the mission of the Facing Africa Auction.

While we do put on other smaller auctions throughout the state of Arizona, we always recommend to attend this specific event because of the large amount of items that will be auctioned off. On average, we usually have 50 items up for auction at our smaller, local events. Since this auction is a statewide auction, we will have over 500 items that will be auctioned off throughout the day. We will be releasing a schedule that will inform you of the specific time frames that you can bid on certain categories of items. For instance, this year we will be featuring cars, trucks, and other vehicles that you will have a chance to bid on from 12PM – 2PM. Our jewelry and antiques will be auctioned off from 9AM – 10AM. Since this event runs from 8AM – 8PM, we are hoping this auction schedule will help people that are only interested in specific things so you won’t have to wait around all day to bid on whatever items you want.

This year we will also be adding another bidding feature to the mix. We’ve had an auction app created for us that we will be launching for the Phoenix Auction. Since our auctioneer won’t have a chance to present every item in front of our live audience, we will be selecting certain items that won’t be part of the live auction but will be a part of our online auction. This means that you can bid on certain things and if you win, you will be able to get that item in person at the event.

We are extremely excited to see everyone at the Phoenix Convention Center for our 10th annual auction. If you have any questions about the event, please contact us. Discounted tickets will be available online soon so we highly recommend jumping on those while they’re available. We’ll also have a buy 1 get 1 free deal going on for a limited time for those of you that want to bring a friend or family member with you. If you’ve never been to one of these events, we have a bunch of vendors that will be serving food & drinks (including beer gardens) and a bunch of other really great stuff. We look forward to breaking our attendance record and raising more money for Africa than we ever have before!…

What Is Facing Africa Auction?

The Facing Africa Auction is a group of people dedicated to making a positive difference in Africa. With a diverse range of problems facing this great continent, we have decided to leave our legacy helping out the poor souls who live here and are experiencing hell. How do we accomplish this? We get many items donated to us from people of all economic classes, sell these items at auction, and use the money raised during the auction to donate to our partner charities.

We accept all sorts of items to auction off, and we’ve made a complete list of those items here. If you’re thinking to yourself that instead of buying something you don’t need in order to help us on our mission, we have a solution for you. We take donations from those of you who just want to help without going through the auction process. We encourage you to check out the items on our auction page because we usually have some great stuff at a bargain price, but if you don’t have time for that, we understand.

If you’re wondering what our biggest concerns are in Africa, it would have to be hunger. While we understand that there is a severe shortage of medicines and vaccines in Africa, we also understand that if someone gets vaccinated than starve to death, nobody wins. We certainly donate to multiple charities that handle a wide range of issues but our main focus is food, and our second most important focus would be towards health care.

We appreciate all of your for taking the time to check out our blog and we hope we can inspire you to help us make a positive impact in this great country.
