On May 9, 2012, The 3rd Annual Fragrance Foundation Online FiFi Charity Auction will kick-off and the event runs until May 30, 2012. The Foundation has once again teamed with Charitybuzz.com to put together a treasure trove of auction packages. The proceeds of the 2012 FiFi Online Charity Auction will benefit the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and Adopt the Arts, charities supported by FiFi celebrity host, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Jane Lynch. Founded in 1977, NCLR is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families. The mission of Adopt the Arts, a charity that Lynch has been instrumental in organizing, is to bring together well-known artists and public figures to save the arts in America’s public schools. CharityBuzz.com is kicking things off with a special pre-auction “FiFi Package” promo as part of its Mother’s Day auction. Up for bid are two tickets to this year’s FiFi Awards gala with the opportunity to meet FiFi host Jane Lynch. Bid now at http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/2957110
