Last night I was watching the news, and it must have been a slow news day because this story came on. However, i thought it was a great PSA to share on why drinking and auctioning is bad...
A Colorado woman recently went to a fundraising auction at a school that also had alcohol. She had some margaritas and decided to take part in the auction.
She ended up bidding $890 on various items, including professional pet portraits, a vacation to Colorado Springs and an authentic Broncos football, signed by the really bad 2017 team.
Now she is sober and has a message;
"Do not ever allow yourself to become tipsy prior to the commencement of a live auction. When you allow yourself to become intoxicated before a live auction, you run the risk of becoming blinded by your competitive spirit and also you very well may bid on something you have zero interest in when you are sober."
