Anyone can bid on the items offered, whether they attend the March 10 Gala or not. Bidding will open on Thursday, March 9, at 6 a.m. EDT and will close on Friday, March 10, at 9:30 p.m. EDT. The catalogue, with guidance for potential bidders, is here: bit.ly/HBFGalauction2023.
The offerings include a car detailing package from the Fred Beans Family of Dealerships and 12 monthly deliveries of coffee from the Hawaii farm run by Cynthia and Bruce Maryanoff. There’s a PlayStation 5 in the auction. Sundance Vacation donated two Philadelphia Eagles tickets which are part of a larger package, including a football autographed by Miles Sanders, a photo signed by Darius Slay, a beanie and a bottle of wine. There are five travel packages, such as a night at the Camelback Resort and a New York City adventure. Car enthusiasts can bid on a drag-racing pit crew experience. And Leading Edge Aviation has given a Discovery Flight, which is a great way to experience flying in a small plane while enjoying aerial views of Bucks County.
“The auction’s proceeds all go to support the many programs and services provided by the Hepatitis B Foundation both here in the United State and worldwide,” Jean Holmes, vice president for institutional advancement at the Foundation, said. “We are the nation’s leading nonprofit organization solely dedicated to finding a cure for hepatitis B and improving the quality of life for those affected worldwide through research, education and patient advocacy. Our operations are continually expanding both in scope and geography, thanks in part to the many donors who support the Foundation.”

About Hepatitis B: Hepatitis B is the most common serious liver infection in the world. It is caused by the hepatitis B virus that attacks and injures the liver. Each year up to 1 million people die from hepatitis B worldwide, even though it is preventable and treatable. Hepatitis B is a “silent epidemic” because most people do not have symptoms when they are newly or chronically infected. Thus, they can unknowingly infect others and continue the spread of hepatitis B. For people who are chronically infected but don’t have any symptoms, their livers are still being silently damaged, which can develop into serious liver disease such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
