The online auction of Priority: Alzheimer’s Quilts runs from July 1 to July 10 and represents a significant portion of the AAQI’s income. All profits from the AAQI is used to fund research, and that’s why we’re in business. Thanks to your efforts we have raised more than $730,000 for research, one quilt at a time. Let’s see how much we can raise in the July auction. (Hint: share this with a friend.)
Please bid generously. Buying art to support a worthy cause is a good thing, right? (Martha Stewart, are you listening? More importantly, are you bidding?!)

c. Any more and bids might go down
