Online auction for J. Smith Community Health Center

There's a new online auction to benefit the Joseph M. Smith Community Health Center.

JMSCHC provides high-quality, comprehensive, culturally-competent and affordable primary health care and selected specialty services to families and individuals in Allston, Brighton, Waltham and surrounding communities. All are welcome – children and adults, the insured and uninsured, the employed and unemployed, long- and short-term residents and recently arrived immigrants.

Bids will be accepted until 8pm on January 7. As always, there are great items for yourself or for gifts. Here is a sampling:

Eye exam and glasses from the Joseph Smith Center.
Celtic tickets, along with a Fuddruckers gift certificate (Jan 18).
A trip for two to Washington, DC.
Custom made box by a woodworking instructor from the Eliot School.
A hot air balloon ride for two (almost anywhere in the country!)
Membership at the Equinox Fitness Club.
One dozen brownies from Emily's Brownies.
Private cooking instruction from TaylorMade Meals.
Red Sox memorabilia.
Overnight stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Cambridge, MA.
Concert tickets for Luciana Souza Trio (Jan 22) and Carolina Chocolate Drops (Jan 23).

An interior design consult from Brenda Be.

Please bid often and pass this along to your friends.

I apologize if others have made this point in the past. But reading about these on-line auctions for equipment for community health centers is making me think of that classic saying "It will be a great day when the schools have all the money they need and the military has to hold a bake sale."
