Each month, Rotary promotes on its social media outlets a set of upcoming events, and eBay, the world’s largest auction website, donates to Rotary a portion of all sale proceeds from those events.
“eBay Live Auctions” events enable buyers to participate in auctions across the United States — held at such auction houses as Sotheby’s, Swann, and Freeman’s — without leaving home. Under this proceeds-sharing agreement, only U.S. auction sales are eligible.
Numerous auctions are held on nearly a daily basis, and the auctionable items vary greatly — Picasso ceramics, rare signed and unsigned posters, modern and contemporary art, modern and vintage timepieces, metal ad and beer signs, African and Oceanic art and statuary, decorative art, a wide range of jewelery, and on and on.
