The Winchester Thurston School, a local private college-preparatory school in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, recently hosted its annual online auction from February 13, 2013 to March 7, 2013.
Proceeds from the online auction directly benefit financial aid opportunities, educational programs and operational needs for Winchester Thurston.
Always willing to support a great cause, local Pennsylvania dealership, MINI of Pittsburgh, donated the only sensible item it had in stock for the online auction.
And, that was none other than a weekend with a MINI Convertible.
A total of 1,422 bids placed on more than 250 auction items raised $36,867 for Winchester Thurston.
Auction items ranged anywhere from vacation getaways to restaurant and spa gift certificates and, of course, a weekend with a MINI Convertible.
Winchester Thurston School, with the help of Associates in Ophthalmology, will host a Red Carpet Revelry event on March 9, 2013 at the Fairmont Pittsburgh at 510 Market Street from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. to announce the winners of these charitable prizes.
MINI of Pittsburgh is excited to meet the lucky bidder that gets to spend an entire weekend with one of our MINI Convertibles.
