Please keep in mind we will also offer a small well curated silent auction at the fall event and are still in need of higher value items for that. We would be thrilled to have an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Sonos sound system, Galaxy phone to auction and VIKINGS tickets to auction. Know anyone with season tickets?
For July’s Party in the Park we need themed baskets. Remember you can get great ideas from the auction page of the RIS website. Restaurant gift cards in the $25-$75 range sell well as do gift cards from local retailers. And we always sell beer, wine and liquor so put together a few different kinds of vodka or gin and create a tastings basket. If you are a tradesmen or have recently spent some money on home remodeling, ask those folks to donate 5-10 hours of service.
Bidders in 2017 want to spend money on experiences. If you can find someone to donate lessons of any kind, guided tours (whether active outdoors or cultural), weekend cabin stays, ski lodgings, cooking classes, boating trips- we want them.
To learn more or donate go to our auction home page. We want to raise $20,000 at the summer auction and only with your help can we do it!
Our 2017 Silent Auction will begin taking bids on-line the weekend before the Party, so register now so you can see all the items in this July is auction and begin your bidding!
