Quincoces wrote on her website that she was inspired to get the auction started when she was brainstorming ways to help her friends and family on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight and stumbled upon an old reunion dress.
All proceeds will go to #FirstRespondersFirst — an initiative created by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Thrive Global, and the CAA Foundation to provide frontline healthcare workers with the health and safety resources they so desperately need.
"As many of us in the workforce are being asked to serve public health by stepping back and staying home, one population is being tasked to step forward," Quincoces wrote. "Our frontline health workers are the pandemic’s first responders. And they are lacking even rudimentary resources as they risk their own health and endure exhaustion, burnout and many other challenges on our behalf."
"They’re taking care of us," she said. "We need to help take care of them."
Bidding will continue through June 12.
