I’m going to copy and paste the Press Release because I’m way too hungover to paraphrase right now.
Sounds like a great event
ALBANY NY – Â The ASAP (Albany Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy) Daisies are hosting a live auction, Bids for a Brighter Future, on Thursday, April 26th at Daisy Bakers in Troy. Â This auction of services and experiences will benefit Compassion in Action and Koinonia Primary Care.
Compassion in Action/Koinonia Primary Care was founded by Dr. Bob Paeglow and his wife Leane to touch the lives of the people of West Hill and Arbor Hill. This region is among the poorest in Albany; few of its residents can afford any type of medical insurance. The clinic provides patients with primary medical and mental health services regardless of their ability to pay.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the Auction at 7:30 p.m. Â A suggested donation of $5 is asked at the door and includes Hors d’oeuvres. Â Drink specials provided by Daisy Bakers and music by Platypus. Â Some of the auction items up for bid include dinner with Times Union Columnist and Table Hopping blogger Steve Barnes, Beer Tasting and Dinner at Olde English Pub and Wolff’s Beirgarten, Personal Training Session with a CrossFit coach and a Glennpeter Jewelry party for four.
The ASAP Daisies is a non-profit organization with the express purpose of encouraging others to do well by their fellow person. The society was founded in August of 2004 by a group of young male professionals and has since grown to over 70 members and 2 chapters. Â The ASAP Daisies were formed in November of 2009 by a group of young women who wanted to further the ASAP goals of promoting philanthropy in the Albany area by creating fun and unique events. Â ASAP is not dedicated to any specific philanthropic endeavor. Â As the ASAP logo famously states, members are asked only to â€œrelax and encourage.â€
