Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation Charity Auction Benefit
BaCon - Friday, June 10, 2016

Our good friend Joe Moscone has let us know that he's once again working to raise funds for charity from the collection of toys he's built up over the years. Working a decade as PR representative for Hasbro's many toy lines such as Transformers, GI Joe and Star Wars. He's collected enough that he's able to turn his love of toys into something that can help others.

Through the joys of toy collecting, you can help too. Read on about how to involved with Joe's cause, The Greg Olsen Foundation, to support hospitals and doctors helping others. 100% of all money raised goes to the cause from the auctions they have running now through June 13th! Read on for the details from, Joe.
As many of you might recall, last year around this time, I launched a number of eBay auctions featuring toys and collectibles from my personal collection gathered during my 10 years working in the toy world. We’re back at it again this year and I’m hoping that you will consider spreading the word with your readers and friends.

100% of the money raised from these auctions is donated to Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, an incredible organization devoted to providing hospitals, doctors and scholars across the nation the resources necessary to treat and enrich the lives of those affected by various forms of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Since 2010, I have led a small group of friends—we call ourselves the New Jersey Grabowskis—in fundraising for the foundation through a variety of local community and social media tactics. Last year, my girlfriend Caitlin and I introduced the charity toy auction into the fray in an attempt to take our fundraising efforts to the next level—and boy did it ever!

My team has now raised more than $90,000 since we began seven years ago, and as we enter the homestretch of this year’s fundraising campaign, we’re hoping that you can help us elevate our fundraising once again by helping us drive more traffic and potential buyers to our eBay auctions.

Unlike last year, when we posted a dozen or so items a week across a month or so, this year we’ve posted everything (30+ items) all at once. IT’S LIVE NOW! And the auctions end this Monday, June 13th!

Here’s a link to our eBay auction:

(NOTE: Below is a list of the items being auctioned.)

Again, thank you for your time and please let me know if you’re able to help us spread the word for this great cause!

All our best,
Joe & Cait
