The Philadelphia Children’s Alliance is gearing up to host the 14th annual Bear Affair tomorrow night at the Crystal Team Room. The nonprofit supports the city’s sexually abused children, and the Bear Affair is its primary annual fundraiser. It also turns out to be a pretty massive silent- and live-auction.
A quick look through the PCA’s auction lineup reveals a five-bedroom vacation rental in Avalon, tickets in the mayor’s box to see One Direction, theater tickets here and in New York, and stays at half the hotels in the city. Plus a slew of museum tickets, wine-related paraphernalia and a three-hour private shopping party for ten at Nicole Miller.
Of note considering our own interests: we’ve also learned that Philly Living‘s Noah Ostroff has offered up his team’s services commission-free to a silent auction winner. Ostroff reports that his team sells properties that average a sales price of about $500,000, meaning his 3 percent commission would come out to something close to $15,000. Quite the steal for the right bidder.
If you’re interested in listing your property and would rather pocket the 3 percent yourself, you can submit blind bids through PCA or live ones at the event May 1.
