BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation receives thousands of dollars from Baterbys to help local children challenged w/ cancer. Baterbys’ Richard Hart, who recently earned the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation, is simply glad to help.

BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation, www.basecamp.org, announced on October 6,  2009  that Baterbys Art Gallery has donated thousands through their SOCIAL INVOLVEMENT/ ART Auction Benefit to help BASE Camp CCF in its mission of providing programs and services for children and families impacted with cancer and other life threatening, hematology related illnesses.

With over $15.6 billion raised through charity-benefit auctions in 2006, more and more non-profits and charities are turning to professional auctioneers to help them raise donations in support of their causes. Professional auctioneers like Richard Hart of Baterbys have made it their ethos to contribute to society’s betterment amidst the country’s financial condition.

“This generous donation comes at a time when our funding has been negatively impacted by the economy,” said Jackie Ellis, executive director of BASE Camp.  “We are very thankful for the fundraising efforts of Richard Hart, President of Baterbys”.

Richard Hart, President of Baterbys Art Galley stated, “We appreciate your organization and what you are doing for the children and their families.  We are glad to contribute to your donated funds as away to give back to the community”.

Baterbys’ next auction event on Nov 7 will benefit Hope and Help of Central Florida (hopeandhelp.org). The organization aims to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and simultaneously provide social and medical support to those who are battling against the disease in Central Florida.
