Throwdown for Miracle of Love

August 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Our goal is to to help local charities and organizations in Orlando with a fundraising event. We also support our local Makers, Artists, and Small businesses by having 20 local vendors at our events. It gives them the local exposure they need to grow. This is a unique and true “Supporting local” event. Our Throwdowns are held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the VFW Post 4287, 3500 S. Goldenrod rd. The VFW is also a nonprofit that assists all men and women veterans in their time of need.

The event is kind of like bingo. Each guest donates – $3.00 a paddle or $5 for two paddles. Their donation goes to the charity we host that night. You will nee paddles to play the game. This is a FREE EVENT (we invite the public to shop the floor, if they do not want to play the game) Some people buy more than one paddle so they can play more than one auction. They use the same paddle all night to bid quarter on items that the consultants have donated. The guests bid on each item by putting their quarter into a basket and holding up their paddle. Each item has a minimum bid. It could be 1-3 quarters. As each item is “closed” for bidding, a number is picked from a bowl of numbered chips and whoever owns that number on their paddle wins the prize. If you do not bid and your number is pulled, then you do not win. We call you a ‘No Bidder” and another number is pulled until a winner is called. **$3 for Paddle Rental ($ goes to charity). You may rent more than one **Roll of Quarters for Bidding (A limited amount of Quarters will be available for dollars) **Extra cash for 50/50 drawing (50% goes to charity) **Extra cash to purchase products that you love from vendors** There is a cash bar and food available for purchase (Burgers, Fries, Salads, Sandwiches)
