While there are many Chinese Auctions benefiting important and worthy organizations, the www.mychabadauction.com auction benefiting Chabad of Hunterdon County’s scholarship fund might have a little known advantage; A dramatically better chance of winning a prize. Here’s why:
The “Big Boys” in the Auction arena are generally powerful and prestigious organizations. They are the who’s who in the Jewish world. Touching the lives of thousands if not millions of people; helping families pay for weddings, educating the next generation of Jewish leaders, protecting Jewish rights for those that are serving our country or serving time. I cannot emphasize how critical these organizations are and how important it is to support them. Their scope and size enables these venerable organizations to fulfill their mandate and shape the landscape of the Jewish world.
The one area where the size of an organization can actually work as a disadvantage for its supporting body is when it comes to Chinese Auctions. Why you ask? To answer this most intriguing question one must first examine the mechanics of a Chinese Auction, a sort of “behind the scenes look” at how it works: Now this may come as a surprise but its true; Each item in a Chinese Auction is like a mini raffle, where the more tickets purchased (good for the supported agency) the less chance there is to win that “mini raffle” (not so good for the consumer or supporter).
www.mychabadauction.com is a relatively small auction and not so many people purchase tickets (not so good for organization) therefore the chances of winning prizes are pretty good (great for the hopeful supporter).
So there you have it a powerful case has been made for you to log onto www.mychabadauction.com buy some tickets, support a good cause and win big. Be careful though, don’t buy too many tickets because then the odds of winning will go down and my argument will be shot!
One of the spotlight prizes of this year’s auction is a Fighter Pilot for a day package. The winner of last year’s Fighter Pilot prize was Mr. Mathew Koff from Pennsylvania.
“Unbelievable experience, I had no idea what to expect,” said Mathew. “The thrill traveling from that angle at that speed and doing the maneuvers was truly a once in a life time experience.” Two Fighter Jets took off in formation and preformed in unison for over 40 minutes. “Zig zaging in and out of flip routines at 600 miles an hour while you can practically reach out and touch the other fighter jet with your hand was breathtaking,” he said. “Whoever wins this prize will remember the experience for the rest of their lives,” quipped Matt.
The auction has other unique prizes like a trip for two to Israel, The Apple Macbook Air, $1,000 Visa Gift Card a Trip for two to Orlando, FL and much more, in fact there are over $50,000 worth of prizes. The auction evening will take place on Sunday March 6th at 6:00 PM in Flemington, NJ.
