  • 1. Exciting On-line Auction will be launched Tuesday, May 8th to Help Protect our Nation’s Bays and Estuaries It’s easy to buy and donate exciting and unique on-line auction items to help raise funds for our nation’s Bays and Estuaries! Have fun becoming the highest bidder and win an exciting outdoor adventure or mini-vacation while you help protect and restore our nation’s Bays and Estuaries! It’s easy to participate in the Association of National Estuary Program’s (ANEP’s) on-line auction found on www.ebay.com, the popular Internet auction house. When: On Tuesday, May 8, 2001, ebay.com will begin hosting an on-line auction where you can bid on fun and unique donated auction items. The auction will continue for the next few months. New items will rotate in on a continual basis, so keep checking the site! How do I Find ANEP’s E-Auction? Just go to www.ebay.com and see how easy it is! Type “ANEP” in the “search” box located under the EBAY logo on the top left corner, and all our ANEP items will appear. Click on those that interest you, and have fun bidding! Where do the Proceeds Go? The proceeds from the sale of the tax-deductible donations will go to support the nation’s 28 National Estuary Programs (NEPs) and their Association of National Estuary Programs (ANEP). 20 to 40 % of the sale price, depending on the amount of the sale, will be donated to the particular National Estuary Program (NEP) that was responsible for bringing that item to the auction. Together, the NEPs and ANEP (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) provide local and national efforts to restore and protect our nation’s estuaries, bays and lagoons. Example Auction Adventures: This is a great auction for finding a unique birthday present, an anniversary present for your parents, or a fun adventure for you and your family. Examples are boat rides; fishing trips; a 14-person party on board the "Glory", a replica of a Victorian fantail electric launch; lobster hunts; and kayaking trips in your local bay or estuary. There will also be a week-long vacation in a Utah condo located within walking distance to downhill and cross- country skiing! Pamper yourself and a special companion with a weekend stay in your choice of Bed & Breakfast locations. Or, why not buy a weekend trip for some friends, as a present they will never forget? There may be concert tickets, a catered food party, and a dinner for four at a fine restaurant or at a waterfront bistro. Our auction site will continually rotate in new exciting items that are hard to find elsewhere, so keep looking! Would you like to Donate?
