The International Charity Flame On Down Under will feature an online auction following the event, with items creating over the weekend sold to support Spinal Cord Injuries Australia.
Those there on the weekend won’t miss out though, with a Silent Auction of flameworking gear, pieces donated by glass artists who won’t be able to join us, tours and classes. We’ll be putting some of the best of our silent auction items up here so you can get a taste of what we’ll have. It will also give Flame On Supporters, a chance to send absentee bids for some of the great gear.
If you want to lodge an absentee bid, send you contact details along with a starting bid and maximum bid for the item you are interested in to Caroline at email@example.com. She’ll make sure that your bids are made on the weekend. Absentee bids need to be received by 5pm on Friday, September 30.
