Additionally, you and/or your business will be highlighted on the auction site all week and on our daily email/YouTube messages, promoting our cause, encouraging bidding, and generally keeping bidders informed about SCMFO and the families we serve.

We will thank our sponsors in daily video addresses on the week of the auction. Each sponsor will be showcased one day in a video from our celebrity emcee, comedian Ron Ruhman.
