The Auction Committee needs YOU!

Silent Auction
We’ve already begun work to ensure a fantastic Silent Auction at the 2018 Party in the Park. The auction is a major component of the fundraising that occurs at Rein in Sarcoma’s signature event. There are many ways to get involved and participate to make the auction a success. A primary task is identifying and obtaining great items for the auction, so if you have a large social network, love personal interaction and aren’t afraid of rejection- this is for you.

We’ve put together resources on the types of auction items that do well and tools you’ll need to solicit auction donations, including an example solicitation letter and 2018 Gift-in-Kind form.

We also need people to go online and request donations from corporate sites – great if you want to contribute to the effort from home. Anyone with savvy computer skills is welcome to work on printing display placards. Volunteers will be needed to stage the auction on July 19th. And of course there is lots to do the day of the event, as we load and unload the auction truck, set up, run, and break down the auction. If you are interested or have questions please call Jason Patalonis at 651.221.0273 and bring a friend!

We will meet as an Auction Committee at the upcoming Party in the Park Kickoff meeting – Tuesday, March 13th at Summit Brewery – we’d love to have you join us. All our welcome, but come prepared to share ideas, brainstorm and roll up your sleeves and get to work.
