Auction Donation

The live and silent auctions are crucial components of this night. Help us by sharing your connections. We are looking for unique experiences, airline miles/hotel points, celebrity connections, sports tickets, vacation homes, gift cards, concert tickets, etc. Please click here for a request letter and form. 

If you are interested in contributing but you are unsure what to purchase, let our committee help you! Make a donation here and we will use the money toward auction prizes.


Last year’s Annual Benefit “Cove Shines On” raised over $500,000 to support students with learning disabilities at The Cove School. With your help, we look forward to the 2018 Annual Benefit being another successful year!

A special thank you to our community for their generosity and support! If you would like to be a Corporate Sponsor this year, please contact Stephanie Sanderman at [email protected]

We thank the 2017 Corporate Sponsors
