WDW Radio Charity Auction 2015: PREVIEW #4 – Disney Collectibles!

dream-team-project-logoThe Dream Team Project of WDW Radio is designed to support the Make A Wish Foundation of America and their goal of helping children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families experience some “Disney magic” through the granting of their wishes to visit Walt Disney World.  The charity is supported regularly by members of the WDW Radio Running Team, charity events and fundraisers, as well as proceeds of sales of Lou Mongello’s books and audio walking tours. Thanks to the incredible support and generosity of those who donate and help in so many ways, to date the Dream Team Project has raised more than $250,000.00 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America!

This year, the Dream Team Project charity auction returns as a final, major fundraiser of the 2015 year.  Our first two auctions (in 2012 and 2013) were inspiring events, and we were all so grateful for the amazing support of the WDW Radio family.

This year, the WDW Radio Charity Auction promises the return of some favorite auction lots from prior years (can anyone say co-host a live dining review with Lou?) as well as some exciting and NEW auction lots.

The ONLINE auction will begin Friday evening December 4 and conclude Saturday evening December 5.  All information will be posted online on the WDW Radio blog

This year’s auction would never have been possible without the amazing generosity of countless selfless individuals and companies who share our vision of making dreams come true for children with life threatening illnesses.  In our first preview posts, we will be paying tribute to some of those people!
