**The prebid portion of this auction has now closed. Come to Santa Monica for the final excitement. Thank you so much for your interest and support.**
Welcome to the Third Annual Against the Stream Silent Auction. This year we're excited to add the online prebid option so you can browse and bid from home. If you are unable to attend the auction on August 5, in our Santa Monica center, the proxy feature allows you to place your maximum bid so you can still be involved in the live auction. More info on this can be found on the FAQ page on our website.
So many of the items we have in the auction have been created by our sangha members. Additionally, many of the services offered are also provided by our community. We're grateful to everyone who has contributed their energy, talent and love to create this auction.
There is quite a punk rock connection this year as we feature works by Ann Summa, Nicole Panter, and Buck Shanty among others. Obey Giant has donated some more signed Shepard Fairey prints. Plus so much more.
All of the monies raised help support our programs and scholarships. You will notice a few of the items are designated for specific programs such as scholarships for our residential retreats. We are sustained by your generosity and thank you in advance for your support. If you find nothing you want among these items, you might consider making a donation. We are a 501(c)(3) and all monetary contributions are fully tax-deductible.
We hope you can join us for the fun on August 5, from 1-3 in Santa Monica. But thanks for joining us on line and thanks for your support.
