Pink Mini's 2011 Silent Auction

Here they are!!! Thank you for viewing these amazing Pink Mini's made by amazing and generous women!!

Here's how it's going to work:

- The photo's are divided up into albums with 5-6 mini's/card sets per slideshow. There are 7 slideshows: A, B, C, D , E, F , G. Please click "Older Posts" at the very bottom of the blog to see all of the slideshows!

- Each slideshow is a separate post and has a post comment link under it.

- To make a bid, Place you bid in a comment under the slideshow with the album you wish to bid on (Click on "Comments" under the slide show. DO NOT click on the photo itself). Include the name of the mini and your bid amount. You will need to scan previous posts to find out the latest bid. (Make sure to leave your comment under the blog comments NOT the Photobucket comments!! )If you have trouble leaving a bid, email Laura at and I will post your bid for you.

Bidding will remain open until 6 pm Pacific Standard Time on November 5, 2011.

High bidders will be informed after that date/time. High bidders will then go to the Passionately Pink for a Cure event website I have set up to make a donation in the amount of their bid. They will receive the mini that they were high bidder on as a thank you for their donation!

If you want to make a donation rather than bidding on a mini, you can! Click on this link to go to the Passionately Pink Cure Program website and make a donation in the amount of your choosing. The site accepts Visa, MC, Discover and AMEX.Please use this link for all donations!

THANK YOU!!! to all the ladies who made these albums. The love put into them truly shines through!! Thank you to all of you who are viewing these mini's as well.

For general comments, please leave them under this post to keep the album post from getting cluttered. Please DO NOT leave comments, bids only, under the individual slideshow comment section.

I have created a button for your blogs and a flyer to print to and distribute.

Please post any of this info on your blogs! Make sure to link to this blog!

To add the button to a blogger blog, copy the code below the button. Go to your blog, add a gadget to your side bar, select "html/javascript". Paste in the code and WOW! it actually works!! (Trust me I am shocked that I got it to work!!)

Here is the flyer. Click on the graphic to copy and print. I have them laid out so that there are two on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.

Thank you for all of your help in making this event successful!
