‘Bid for the Kids’ Auction to Benefit Ronald McDonald House

Posted: Updated:

A group of University of Virginia students is holding an online auction to benefit the Ronald McDonald house.

"Bid for the Kids" was created as part of a project management class in the McIntire School of Business. Twenty-four items are up for grabs, including a wine tour with free tastings and a chance to shoot hoops with UVA basketball player Justin Anderson.

Organizers say it's a great way to connect work in the classroom with the community.

“We really just wanted to benefit a local cause to give back to the community because we're benefitting so much from what Charlottesville has given us that we want to give back and show our appreciation,” said Meg Beattie, one of the auction’s organizers.

The students are hoping to raise $1,000 through their website. The auction ends at 10 p.m. Sunday.
