Rotary members, their families and friends can support Rotary’s work by bidding on antiques, artwork, jewelry, and collectibles through “eBay Live Auctions” events.
Each month, Rotary promotes on its social media outlets a set of upcoming events, and eBay, the world’s largest auction website, donates to Rotary a portion of all sale proceeds from those events.
“eBay Live Auctions” events enable buyers to participate in auctions across the United States — held at such auction houses as Sotheby’s, Swann, and Freeman’s — without leaving home. Under this proceeds-sharing agreement, only U.S. auction sales are eligible.
Numerous auctions are held on nearly a daily basis, and the auctionable items vary greatly — Picasso ceramics, rare signed and unsigned posters, modern and contemporary art, modern and vintage timepieces, metal ad and beer signs, African and Oceanic art and statuary, decorative art, a wide range of jewelry, and on and on.
