Bid on a signed Johnny Manziel football, help a student with leukemia! | Community Spirit
Van Jr. High School student Byron Jones found out in January that he had leukemia and had to leave school. Now he has to get regular costly chemotherapy, bone marrow and blood transfusions.
"I drive to Dallas every Thursday to get chemotherapy, and if I need blood or anything, I do that," he said.
Van Jr. High School has rallied behind Byron. The students started collecting donations, selling t-shirts and bracelets, and now they're having a silent auction, and they invite everyone to be a part!
If you are interested in bidding on an autographed Jonny Manziel football, the silent auction is occurring this week, Feb. 18-22.
The bidding will start at $2500.00 and the auction will end at 3:00pm, Friday, February 22, 2013. You will need to email Paige Redmond your bid at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your bid.
An email to each bidder will go out daily at 3:00pm to give them an update on the highest bid and bidder. On the final day Paige will send an email out at 12:00pm stating who is currently in the lead and at what amount.
In the event of a tie bid at the deadline on Friday, February 22, 2013, she will notify the parties involved with the tie to give them an opportunity to place one final bid. If the winning bidder cannot follow through on the promise to pay, then the second place bidder will be notified.
Cashier checks and money orders are the only forms of payment that can be accepted.
The monies received will go directly to the family to help pay cover costs incurred from weekly medical treatments.
You can also donate in any amount to Byron at Texas Bank and Trust. Just go to any Texas Bank and Trust and donate to the Byron Jones fund.
There will be a blood drive for Byron at the Van Jr. High gymnasium on February 26 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
