The Annual Auctions that Gave Us Our Start

$2.4 million raised in ten years!

Thad and BrendaWhen my youngest son, Thad, was diagnosed with diabetes at only five years old, and I learned of the terrible side effects he would likely face, I could not just hope for the best. I had to do something to fight back.

The drive to protect my child led me to start an online auction for diabetes research in 2005. It started relatively small--we raised only $34,500 or so our first year--but it grew quickly. I ran Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for ten years and managed to raise $2.4 million, thanks to the fabulous support I received from readers, writers, publishing professionals and advocates. I won't be running an auction in 2015, but I am not giving up the fight. I'm just shifting my focus to curating and selling my new cookbook--LOVE THAT! Brenda Novak's Every Occasion Cookbook--and various collections of stories from big-name authors (like SWEET DREAMS, SWEET TALK and SWEET SEDUCTION) as my fundraising vehicle.

According to the CDC, nearly 10% of Americans have diabetes. That's just an unacceptable number. So I thank everyone who has supported my efforts in the past--and I ask for your help in the future. Together, we can raise the money necessary to beat this terrible disease.
