From Brenda Novak’s assistant comes word that the 2009 Diabetes Auction raised $270,611: “That’s more than last year and it puts us on track to break the 1 million mark in 2010.” According to Novak’s auction page on her website, in five years the auction has raised $770,611 for diabetes research. Way to go!
I am such a big fan of Novak’s auction, and the time and effort that must go into the event is extraordinary. Kudos to Brenda and her assistant Anna, and to everyone who donated. This year, Smart Bitches donated an adspace and an interview, both of which raised an astonishing amount of money. I’m pondering what we can donate next year- any ideas of something you’d like to see or potentially bid on? Let me know.
$1 million raised by 2010? Bring it on.
