Jimmy CORE Foundation
- Costumes/ Sweatpants
No matter what happens in the world, Jimmy’s spirit is strong and the Jimmy CORE Foundation is committed to continuing the mission:
- Continue to provide food, clothing and shelter for the homeless
- Educate and inspire others to lift people up
- Celebrate and maintain the spirit of Jimmy
Of course, Jimbo-Palooza has been the event that drives the excitement, spreads the message and raises funds so that we can help those in need. Even though Jimmy touches us daily, this is the event that brings us together from all over the country, in one place, for one amazing day. Unfortunately, the current circumstances will not allow us to be together physically in 2020. We are celebrating virtually this year so please participate in our auction or make a donation. Anything helps our neighbors in need as this event raises money for our continuing projects.
This year we will continue our mission by building the new laundry room at the new Roof Above facility on Statesville Avenue in Charlotte. Additionally, we will be lifting our neighbors with important winter items to
keep them comfortable as the weather turns cold with an initiative that we call H.U.G.S. (Hats, Underwear, Gloves & Scarves) for the Block. The auction will fund these projects and we are depending on you to get the word out.
Finally, we are asking all of the friends of Jimmy and supporters of the foundation to celebrate Jimmy this weekend. Jimmy loved Halloween and he loved a good costume. He also loved to spend time with friends and family whether it was in person or over FaceTime. So put on a costume, raise a glass and celebrate Jimmy. While you are at it, spread the “lub” by sharing Jimmy’s message and the auction. Thank you for your support from the bottom of our hearts. Lub, The Cores
The online auction will run from Saturday, October 31st 2020 at 1pm until Sunday, November 1st 2020 at 1pm.
The auction can be accessed via the button at the top of this page. You must be registered through the Qtego system in order to bid- there is no cost to register, but you must register a credit card or payment method to bid. We have received many wonderful auction items that may have expiration dates which may make bidding in uncertain times feel challenging for our donors. While we have attempted to remove uncertain items, please know that if social distancing requirements cause an item to be unusable, Jimmy CORE Foundation will gladly offer a new letter with a full donation value or a refund.
AUCTION ITEMS - All items in the auction are affiliated with an auction #. Click on the image or enter the item number into your device or smartphone to bid on the item through the Qtego site. Each incremental bid amount is displayed on Qtego's site and constitutes a valid bid. Each new bid must be entered into the Qtego system (or a Max Bid may be set to allow the system to bid on your behalf).
CHECK OUT PROCESS BY QTEGO: Once the event ends, Qtego launches Fast Checkout for guests with a credit card on file. Qtego will run the card on file and text receipts to the guests.
TERMS & CONDITIONS OF ITEM EXPIRATION - All sales are final. Unless otherwise specified, all auction items and services must be used within a year. Exceptions will be made if social distancing requirements cause an item to be unusable. Purchasers are asked to respect times stipulated by donors and not request changes. As a courtesy, donors should be contacted within 30 days. Payment by a successful bidder must be made by registering a card when registering as a bidder on the Qtego website. Taxes and gratuities are not included unless specifically noted.
ITEM PICK UP AND SHIPPING - Due to the current social distancing requirements, it may not be possible for us to ship your items. We will email or mail certificates and gift cards and other small items. As we are in uncertain times, we will message auction winners with pickup instructions after the online auction has closed. Items that are pick-up-only will be indicated as so in the item notes. We will be offering pick up on Sunday, November 1 2020 and Monday, November 2 2020 in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA.
