Now the question my wife the CPA would ask if she were bidding: Can we get a receipt for a tax deduction for the portion of the winning bid that is above the retail price of the item(s)?

Unfortunately, my CPA (not my wife) says that this is logistically nearly impossible.

 

Sorry :(

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Great stuff. I'd join in but I'd never get to use that bag, such a pity.

Is there a link somewhere for us poor people who would like to contribute to the Ronald McDonald House but are not up to the rigors of the auctions?

My family is dealing with the illness of our child at this time; thankfully we live in the same city as the children's hospital, but there are many families that we meet that not so lucky. Ronald McDonald house has been amazing for them, providing them with food and lodging. Many parents have to take time off from work to be with the sick child, leaving them without a family income; having to pay for hotel and restaurants (especially for extended stays) in addition to their medical costs, would quickly sink the family.

On behalf of the families that we meet that have to make use of this charity, we thank you for your generosity.

It was a personal experience with one of these families (the boy is well and growing up now.  Probably an annoying tween at this point) that showed how great is this organization.

Always good to hear from one of our senior-most members.  You may either donate to Styleforum.financial@gmail.com, using a personal payment, with the subject line: "Donation, Ronald McDonald House Holiday Drive", or look at www.rmhc.org, to see how to donate directly.  I think that the important thing is that we get the money to the charity without going through a middleman, who usually take 10%+ of the donation for overhead.  We will be giving over 100% of the auction proceeds and other donations directly to the organization.

Fok how many auctions and how many days? Or is this all a surprise and we will wait and find out?

We have a lot of auctions.  Not all are in right now, but in the coming days, you can look forward to a beautiful Urushi lacquered Globetrotter briefcase from Bespoke England, a custom briefcase from Neo Nouveau, a new model, customized briefcase from @JP Marcellino, a MTM Southwick jacket and a pocket square from @Epaulet, Tweed jackets and a pocket square from @Kent Wang, Alden Chukkas from Need Supply (@DavidRVA), A Bejamin suit or Sportjacket (winner's choice) from @eHaberdasher, a full sportsjacket, sweater, tie, and pocketsquare set from @darkmatter7 of Nsuited, and a MTO pair of non-exotic St, Crispins from @LeatherSOUL Hawaii.  We are getting more donations in as we speak!  From here, all auctions will be 24 hours!

 

For some health reasons, I can't be here as much as I'd like, but I'll be able to check in occasionally!  @unbelragazzo will be the MC, and he should be able to answer nearly all your questions.

 

Please give generously and bid expansively.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Less than 24 hours to go on this auction, guys. Think about how awesome it would be to:

Change someone's life with a donation of $1100...$1150...$1200....even $1500...

AND

Get this beautiful sold-out bag:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

AND

your pick of a Drake's scarf from No Man Walks Alone. Like maybe this one:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Or this one:
.
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

And here was I hoping that no-one had noticed that one on the end and would be all auctioned out by the time it came up, leaving me to grab the spoils with less opposition.

 

Ah well, better for charity this way!
