2. Donate something to the
Silent Auction or Gift Basket
We’d like to receive about 20-30
donations of items that are clearly worth
at least $100 or more and the bidding
will start at $50. Ideally we will
receive items worthy of starting the
bidding at $100.
Here are some ideas for donations to
the Silent Auction:
Works of Art: Paintings/Sculpture/Jewelry
etc: these should be clearly worth hundreds of dollars.
Vacation Homes for a weekend or a week:
donate the use of a house or a city
apartment that would clearly get hundreds
or thousands on the open market.
Professional services ($200 to $1000 gift
certificate) for a dentist/doctor, legal,
accounting, music or voice lessons, HVAC,
roofing, painting, recording, video
production, landscaping, gardening, (use
your imagination) – here you are donating
Frequent flyer miles: donate enough for a
round trip ticket.We’ve already received a donation for two round trip tickets anywhere on American Airlines; bidding will start at $500 for both. Last year this donation raised $2400.
A Private Concert: Do you perform
professionally? Are you in demand? Donate
a house concert.
An instrument in good to excellent
condition that is clearly worth a few
hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Do You Know a Famous Person?: Ask them to
donate time - a lunch or dinner date - or
donate an instrument.
Donations to the Gift Basket would be all
the items that are too inexpensive to be
a separate silent auction item. They will
be grouped together as a giant “Gift
Basket” and one person will win it via
a raffle tickets. Here are some ideas:
CDs, DVDs, Tickets to Shows/Musical
Events, jewelry/photos/works of art that
are less expensive, gift certificates for
$25 to $50, services worth up to $75.
