Community Grief Support is going…. Virtual!
We have moved our “Lift Your Spirits” Gala 2020 – our biggest fundraising event of the year, to a completely online platform.
The auction is from:
8am CST on Monday, September 14th – 6pm Sunday, September 20th
Access to the auction is free of charge.
Bid big and bid often. Share with friends, art lovers and more…
- Featuring works of art by local, national and international artists who are well renowned. Most art pieces are 6×6 canvases, plus other exciting items, such as wine baskets, stock-the-bar, weekend getaways, jewelry, dining packages, luggage, fitness packages, autographed footballs, and more.
- If you win an auction item, you will be able to choose between picking your items up at CGS or coordinating local delivery or shipping once the auction has concluded. We will process all of the items from the auction and then send all of our winning bidders an email with a form to complete, which will allow you to select your Pick-Up, Local Delivery, or Shipping preferences.
- If you have questions or need support with the auction website, please call Lisa Harrison at: 205.870.8667 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as quickly as we can.
- Loads of thanks to our dedicated 2020 Sponsors. With their continued support, we are able to bring you this incredible virtual silent auction.

Auction Item Pick-Up Details:
We will have designated pick-up times starting September 22 – October 23. PICK UP TIMES ARE: Monday-Friday: 10am-4pm. You must contact us if you are unable to pick up your items by October 9th. If we have not heard from you about picking up your item, we will contact the next highest bidders. Your original payment will not be refunded. CGS is located at 1119 Oxmoor Road Homewood, AL 35209. Our phone #: 205.870.8667. Please include the zip code in your GPS app to ensure you’re heading the right way.
Local Delivery Details: Local Delivery will be offered within a 10-mile radius of CGS for a fee of $15. This fee will be added to your order once we contact you in the days after the auction closes. We will get your delivery address at that time as well.
VERY IMPORTANT: Note that some pieces are marked as LOCAL DELIVERY and/or PICK UP ONLY and cannot be shipped. Please refer to each item’s description for these details. All items will be shipped USPS Priority except for items marked as “Fragile” in their descriptions – in those cases, we will be using UPS to pack and ship your piece. You will have the final shipping cost added to the total amount charged to your card when we process your purchase. We will coordinate this with you in the days after the auction concludes. We will ship items out as soon as possible, but expect that your item will take 3-4 weeks to ship. You will be notified as soon as your package has shipped. We won’t be able to assist in the delivery of items we deem unsuited for shipping or local delivery under any circumstances. Due to the nature of the auction, we will also be unable to refund any winning bids placed on items that we deem unsuited for shipping or local delivery. You may coordinate with an art handler to pick it up and arrange delivery – however we cannot facilitate this. We will be in contact with you during the week of September 21st to coordinate all shipping and local delivery.
