The funds raised from the charity auctions will be donated to this year‘s 'High Five!’ theme – supporting Ukrainian refugee children in Latvia. Last year's ‘High Five!’ charity auctions raised almost EUR 25 000.
Auction items include a slot on the airwaves, skydiving and an oyster opening masterclass – preferably not all three at the same time.
Also on offer is a private cinema screening, food deliveries and a Manchester United shirt signed by England soccer star Marcus Rashford plus numerous other novelties.
The auction is organised by Ziedot.lv in cooperation with “Pērkam Kopā” and is available on the charity marathon website www.dodpieci.lv. All proceeds from the charity auction will go to the Emergency Relief
Fund to provide direct assistance for the basic needs of Ukrainian refugee children in Latvia.
More information on the rules of the auction can be found here: https://izsole.dodpieci.lv/noteikumi/
