Donate a Silent Auction Item!
The Friends are preparing for the 2018 Golden Gala, and we are seeking items for our silent and live auction. We bet you have something to donate, and this is a great and easy way to give a little extra to the Friends!
Are you an artist, hobbyist, or crafter?
Think of holiday gift buyers!
Do you have a skill to share? Like to bake for others or take friends on nature hikes?
People love to purchase experiences!
Do you own or work at a retail establishment?
Gift cards or certificates are always great auction items!
Contact Aryn LaBrake at email@example.com or 505-750-3383 for more information on Silent Auction Donations
If you have any ability to request donations of tours, backstage passes, experiences, or services - please especially look into those options. You could also consider donating a special service or talent you may have. Often these experience oriented items bring in high bids during our auctions and they usually don't cost a lot of money to the person donating; therefore they make a big impact for the Friends.
Some examples for consideration include:
Dessert of the month
Week at a time-share or cabin
Lessons including Music/Art/Sport/Cooking/Photography
Small construction project (example: bird houses)
Afternoon High Tea (for a birthday party, etc.)
Tour of City or Local Attractions
Party Bus to Brew Pubs (get pub to donate beers)
Lead a Hike
Yard maintenance, grass mowing
Themed dinner for 6
Host a children's party
Fresh produce from your garden 2 times a month
Baskets of fruit from your garden
Plant a flat of pollinator plants for you in your garden
