Silent Auction – LL Fundraiser Opportunity

Raise money for your LL at Convention by participating in the Silent Auction. Revenues are split 50/50 with the LWVCO. We suggest items such as gift baskets, artwork, and condo stays to bring in the highest bid.

NOTE: This is a Basket Only Auction as no individual items will be accepted unless they are considered artwork, a gift certificate or for services.

Please bring your silent auction item(s) to the lower level at the hotel starting at 9am on Friday, May 30th. All items (every basket, artwork piece or certificate) will require a DESCRIPTION and VALUE written out on a 4×6 index card to attach to the item. Feel free to do this task prior to delivery.
