September Charity of the Month: Your Choice!

After our first month of our new charity of the month program, we’re happy to report back fantastic results for Boys and Girls Club of Metro Phoenix. This month we will be donating $885.00 to their organization!

Our business is exceeding your fundraising goals and assisting charities raise money for their causes. We chose to further our efforts by taking a page out of our own playbook. Any in-office sales will automatically include a 10% donation to a designated charity each and every month!

This month, we’re looking for your help. We want you to submit a charity to us and tell us why they deserve 10% of our in-store profits for the month. Tell us their story—tell us what makes them thrive in our community. Tell us why we should donate to their cause—and we will! We are looking for that special story that changed the lives of those whom you help.

All submissions are due to marketing@cbuauctions.com by Friday, September 12, 2014.

welcome

Welcome to CBU, Kenneth!

This week we’re welcoming a new addition to our event staff, Kenneth! Kenneth will be working in and around the CBU office and out at our events. He knows a ton of information about sports and memorabilia in general—so if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to stop him and ask!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Our entire CBU staff was challenged by our President, Kyle Bell to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and we accepted! We feel honored to be a part of this challenge and to be able to raise money to help ALS research. Kyle himself had executed AND donated to the cause TWO TIMES and now his company followed suit! Donating after our mid-afternoon ice baths, that makes a total of THREE donations! We had to keep the momentum going so we decided to nominate our good friends over at Steve LeVine Entertainment, GiveSmart AZ, and Luis Gonzalez of the Arizona Diamondbacks! They now have 24 hours to accept our challenge! Click here to watch our challenge!

Facts you should know:

* ALS is not contagious.

* It is estimated that ALS is responsible for nearly two deaths per hundred thousand population annually.

* Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may have the disease at any given time.

* Although the life expectancy of an ALS patient averages about two to five years from the time of diagnosis, this disease is variable and many people live with quality for five years and more. More than half of all patients live more than three years after diagnosis.

* About twenty percent of people with ALS live five years or more and up to ten percent will survive more than ten years and five percent will live 20 years. There are people in whom ALS has stopped progressing and a small number of people in whom the symptoms of ALS reversed.

* ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries.

* ALS can strike anyone.

“Charity of the Month” donation program

In our continuing efforts to consistently help our clients exceed their fundraising goals and raise money for charities, we decided to take a page out of our own playbook. From now on, any in-office sales will automatically include a 10% donation to a designated charity each and every month!

 
So this month, retroactively, we will be donating all of these proceeds to Boys and Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Phoenix. We chose the Boys and Girls Club offices in Metro Phoenix due to the severe damage caused by the storm on August 12th. Come and see our unique memorabilia pieces and support this great cause.
