Get your bids in quickly for an online auction event to support Bonfils Blood Center's efforts after the Aurora shootings. There are over 45 items being auctioned off that are available both locally and nationally.

Items range from gift cards to the very popular Park Burger and Osteria Marco restaurants to 4 hours of European handyman services to an autographed Brian Griese football. The auction is live through midnight on Sunday, August 5, 2012.

In the minutes and hours following the Aurora theater shooting, Bonfils Blood Center distributed nearly 350 units of blood to the five local Colorado hospitals treating victims of this tragedy. Beginning as early as 7 a.m. Friday, July 20, community members began responding by visiting Bonfils’ fixed-site and mobile blood donation centers all across the state as a way to provide support to those affected and to replenish the community blood supply.

For more information on the auction and its offerings, please visit the Blacktie Colorado auction page.
