Online Auction: The Newest Foundation Fundraiser

Today marks the beginning of Foundation Month 2012! This is a time for members throughout Sons of Norway to celebrate the Foundation and its great work as well support it through the various fundraising options available. This year the Foundation is trying something new and I hope you’ll be as excited about it as I am.

For the first time, the Sons of Norway Foundation is hosting an online auction fundraiser to help support its numerous grant and scholarship funds! Through a partnership with, the Foundation is auctioning dozens of different, unique items and experiences.

There are a number of items that would make great additions to any Scandinavian home, or special gifts for your family and loved-ones. From commemorative Christmas ornaments to autographed CDs, to hand-made collectibles, the Foundation auction is sure to have something of interest for everyone.

Some of the items up for bid include rosemaled pieces, hand-made tine boxes, books and autographed CDs. In addition, there are a number of opportunities to bid on unique experiences.

Experiences available include behind-the-scenes tours of museums, co-hosting a radio show, or taking a private ride on the Great Wheel (the largest observation wheel on the west coast).

If you see something you like, all you have to do is register with and then place your bid. It’s simple, it’s fun and, above all, it’s a great way to help support the Sons of Norway Foundation.

I hope you’ll join me in supporting the Foundation this month by bidding on one (or more) of the great items being offered.
