News from Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue
We are proudly participating for the third consecutive year with The Faces of Rescue. This year's bear pays tribute to all the animals who have been rescued by Charlie's Angels over the years. The three dogs and three cats pictured on the bear all found their forever home thanks to our rescue. The stars in the night sky symbolize all the animals still looking for their forever homes. The art was created by long-time volunteer and board member Carol Clay. We are grateful to Gizmo & Lola, Gaffney Consulting, and Looking Glass Realty for sponsoring this year’s bear.
This is how it works!
Normally, there is a public auction in October but with Covid-19 in the picture, the organization has gone to a virtual auction. Here's what you need to know.
Bids will be accepted through October 24, 2020 at 7pm. It’s free to register, requiring name, email, phone number, and credit card info. The registered card is NOT automatically charged if bidder places the winning bid.
All bids will take place via the auction website or, once registered, bidders will have the option to bid via text.
Starting bid for all bears is $1,500 and bid increments are $100.
Any bear can be purchased at the "Buy Now" price of $7,500.
After placing a bid, bidders will receive automatic text notification if they are outbid, with the option to submit a new bid via text. There are no reserve bids, meaning you can’t set a price that the system will automatically bid for you. If you are outbid, you will need to place a higher bid if you wish to continue.
On October 24, we will conduct a virtual Facebook Live event of the auction on the Downtown Hendersonville page. We will start the event by spending time introducing each bear and providing information about how to bid before the clock runs out. All bidding is automatically cut off at 7pm, at which point we will announce the winners and the winning bid amounts.
Winning bidders will be contacted regarding payment and picking up their bear via text and email. Several “pick up windows” will be scheduled the week following the event. Winners have 5 days to pay or they will be automatically charged on the credit card filed. Alternatively, winners can pay with cash or check. There will be a 2.95% processing fee on all credit card transactions.
