Are you dying to attend the Healthy Living Summit but couldn’t get one of the original 125 tickets?  Well, have no fear — because I have one extra Golden Ticket right here!

Tomorrow, a silent auction will take place for one golden ticket to the Healthy Living Summit.  All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and my Team in Training efforts to run the Disney marathon


Here are the details about the golden ticket:


  • What:  One free Golden Ticket to the Healthy Living Summit
  • Details:  This ticket covers your entrance to the Friday night ice-breaker party at a swanky Boston bar, entrance to the Summit itself on Saturday, breakfast + lunch of Saturday, and an amazing swag bag filled with healthy products for you to try! 
  • When: The Healthy Living Summit is on August 14 – 15.
  • Where:  Boston, MA
  • WhyTo raise money for my TNT efforts.
  • Exceptions:  This Golden Ticket does not include transportation or hotel costs, which must be paid by the winner.  It’s just a spot at the Summit.


How the silent auction will work:


  • Beginning tomorrow morning at 6 AM, please e-mail your bid to   Please write your bid amount into the SUBJECT LINE of the e-mail.  The body of the e-mail will NOT be read. 
  • Bidding begins at $30 (the cost of the ticket).
  • Bids must occur in increments of $5.
  • I will update the "Bid Widget" (located at the upper right hand column of the blog — you must come off of Google Reader to see it) every 2 hours noting what the current bid amount is and whether the bid amount is "Single" (i.e. just one person has bid that much) or "Multiple" (i.e. more than two people currently have the highest bid).
  • For example, if you have summit a bid to for $45, and then you see on the Bid Widget that the current highest bid is $50, you have been outbid.   If you submit a bid to for $55, and then you see on the Bid Widget that the highest current bid is $55, you are either winning the ticket ("Single") or competing against someone else with a $55 bid ("Multiple").  The Bid Widget will be updated every two hours.
  • You have until 10:30 PM to bid.  I will make one last Bid Widget update at 10 PM.
  • In the scenario that there are multiple highest bids at the end, I will randomly select the winner.
  • The winner has until Thursday morning at 10 AM EST to pay the winning bid amount to my TNT page.  If the winner fails to pay by 10 AM, the next highest winner will be contacted.


Remember, not only does the winner get to attend the Healthy Living Summit, but all proceeds go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!   If you have any questions on how this process will work, please feel free to ask.


BIDDING STARTS TOMORROW AT 6 AM EST!  Send all bids to with the bid amount in the subject line.


Get ready to start bidding!
