Totally Awesome VIP Auction Set for Sat. April 13

If you want to party like it's 1999, there's no need to break out your 1980s Prince collection. Have we got the event for you: The Totally Awesome '80s VIP Auction.

The Development Council is proud to present this year's 25th anniversary auction this Saturday, April 13 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Carillon Hilton in St. Petersburg - with a theme harkening back to the decade of MTV, Livin' on a Prayer and livin' with big hair.

Last year, the VIP Auction raised more than $128,000 to support the new Autism Center at All Children's Hospital.  And this year, the Development Council continues to support the efforts of All Children's Hospital as we endeavor to find better ways of diagnosing, assessing and rehabilitating children with autism and other developmental disorders.

Please join us in supporting those efforts by attending this signature event, which promises to be a blast from the past - and just a blast, period. For more details, please visit the auction web page.

It's not too late to make plans for a special night that features delicious cuisine, an auction of many exciting items, and a chance to dance up a storm to chart-topping '80s tunes performed by the Ocean Road Band and some ACH special guests.

If you're interesting in purchasing tickets for the VIP Auction, please contact Waleska Lozada at or by phone at 727-767-4199. And while you're at it, if you'd like to take a tour of the hospital and learn more about our programs, please contact us at (727) 767-2029.

Meanwhile, we hope to see you in the '80s. It's going to be awesome. Totally!
