Orion First Riders Auction

Recommended Posts

$20,000! I wonder what the record for the most money raised for a first rider auction is.

I just checked my page, I have reached my $150 goal. I have a question, does the money automatically go to the park through the page when donated or do we have to send it in?

Believe online donations are collected then because I've already had the withdrawls hit my bank, my understanding of offline/cash donations can be dropped off at the park. Kinda wondering how they will total everything if you don't drop off until day of event though.

Imagine if somebody came to the park with $20k the day of the event in cash and was like “yeah I’d like to ride Orion now, will this cover it?”

same here :( 

I’ve now raised $100, but my donor donated on a wrong link, and didn’t go into the Orion account just a general  A Kid Again one. :wacko:

I’m currently at 305, counting the 100 I just got today but in cash, thanks to everyone who has donated! Currently number 14 on the top 32 list!

I finally got my page set up today.  I am doing a twist--I'm going to match the initial $150 that folks donate to my page with donation to others.  Being in the medical field, I know how important laughter and fun is to the recovery process.

This will be my first time participating in this kind of event so it feels good all the way around. I also purchased a brick for the CP Legacy walk. Lots of ways to make this season a memorable one.

It was great fundraising money for this and I’m very excited for April 9th. A couple questions though. 1. Is there usually a lot of people at the ride auction events? If so should I get there early? Also what time does it start and end?

Well there are currently 645 participants so yes that is a lot of people.  There may be more joining prior to April 3rd deadline.  How many rides will you get?  Well that depends on the actual ride capacity they can achieve on a new ride.   Being a B&M probably pretty good.  
 

Event is 6-9 so maybe plan on hitting the toll booths at 5?  I am sure the park will give guidance closer to the event on when the gates open.

Do all of those participants have the required $150?

Probably not, I failed to perform numerical analysis on the data.  :(

I suspect most will find a way to get there over the next 2 months.

Right now 126 have reached the minimum, 184 additional have any amount between $2-$149.

Just for perspective Mystic Timbers had 334 participants and 186 met the $100 goal.

Interim Healthcare signs on as a sponsor. Nothing in the article mentions sponsorship money in any form going to A Kid Again, which leads me to believe it is not. This does not jeopardize the importance or the integrity of the auction, but it does feel kind of dirty.

Where does the $90,000 figure come from? This is a screen grab from today.

Sorry to double post...

This is from the blog:

Money raised by the more than 700 participants representing 24 states and Canada along with sponsor donations has surpassed $90,000 since fundraising for the charity auction began Jan. 23.

I think it only shows the participant collective donations on the firstgiving site. Sponsors may not be displayed?
