Three Things to Like

Sunday after the Patriots win, you can click over to Cox Sports Television (channel 3) to check out the annual TV auction to benefit Special Olympics Rhode Island. They’ve got some very neat stuff so far this year (friendly advice to golfers and Newport buffs: tune in!). Three things I like about this auction:

1. It’s fun to snap up hot little deals on holiday gifts as you hang out in your living room. 

2. All proceeds go directly toward equipment and sports programs for the athletes. (In RI, there are about 2,700 kids and adults who participate in training and competitions.)

3. It is completely great to see all the local businesses who donate items. In a year like this! But I am always knocked out to see how many local charity events, fundraisers and auctions our Rhody businesses support. You have to love this state.

To watch (or if you can donate – they’re still trying to round up items!), find info right here.
