Ways to Support the Benefit

Donate to the Auction
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 are unsure what to purchase, let our committee help you! Make a donation here and we will use the money toward auction prizes. 

Encourage Others to Donate
Reach out to restaurants you frequent, your favorite stores or to friends and family to see if they would be willing to donate an item or certificate to the auction. Family and friends can also click here to make a monetary donation, which will be used to purchase items for the auctions.
