Though usually on the weekend we recommend getting up and out, sometimes you just want to spend as much time in your pajamas as possible. After all, it doesn’t feel like much of a day off when you’re immediately rushing around, trying to urgently cram in as much fun and as many life-affirming activities as possible. So here’s a Catch you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home– your own bed, even. It’s the Maryland SPCA’s 10th Annual Shop-a-Paw-Looza. It’s an amazing online auction; and it benefits our favorite animal-loving organization while satisfying our desire to shop without getting dressed, as well.
Shop-a-Paw-Looza, opened on Friday, October 3 and closes at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 28. That means plenty of time to follow those items you’re crazy about. And there will be many. “Last year, through the generosity of people who donated items and people who graciously placed bids, the auction raised $44,000 for the Maryland SPCA,” says Tami Gosheff, MD SPCA special events and outreach manager. The auction offers more than 400 items including a Ravens weekend package consisting of two passes to a Ravens practice at their training facility on November 8, dinner for two at Sullivan’s Steakhouse, an overnight stay for two at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore (parking and breakfast included), and two pre-game field passes and two tickets for the Ravens vs. Titans game on November 9. Wow.
There are also gift certificates, tickets to theatre events, sports memorabilia, travel packages, art work and pet items. And if you’re more interested in giving than getting, it’s useful to kno that the MD SPCA is still in need of auction items and will continue to accept donation items while the auction is in progress. All the more reason to keep watching the auction and stay in those PJs.
