The Seeing Eye 4th Annual Online Auction has begun and you can bid on hundreds of great prizes through May 2 at 10 p.m.
All items in the auction catalog are donated by generous individuals and organizations, and all proceeds from the final sale price of each item go directly to support The Seeing Eye’s mission of enhancing the independence and dignity of people who are blind and visually impaired through the use of Seeing Eye® dogs.
Dinner with Betty White, a longtime supporter of The Seeing Eye, is just one of several “one of a kind” experiences being offered in the online auction. Betty White has starred in educational videos, radio public service announcements and contributes to The Seeing Eye Online Auction each year.
“I can’t think of a better person to share a meal with than Betty. We’re so thankful for her continued support of The Seeing Eye’s online auction,” said The Seeing Eye’s President & CEO Jim Kutsch. “The Seeing Eye puppy we named for Betty White’s 90th birthday, and in recognition of her lifelong love of animals, is living up to her name. Betty the puppy is friendly, outgoing and really enjoys meeting new people!”
Auction categories include getaways, designer items, gift baskets for dog lovers, sports tickets and memorabilia, entertainment packages and accessibility products. Some exciting auction items include getaways to New York, Boston, San Francisco and the Bahamas, a tour for two at The Seeing Eye’s breeding station, naming a Seeing Eye puppy, or spending a day with a Seeing Eye trainer.
