Make a Difference – Help the Mission!

Auction at the Fall Fundraiser
What can you do in five minutes to make a difference in the fight against sarcoma? On Thursday evening, October 11, we will hold our Third Annual Fall Fundraiser. This evening has become an important and significant part of Rein in Sarcoma fundraising. In addition to the donations, ticket sales and Fund-A-Need, the silent and live auctions play a big part in the fun and success of the evening. This is where we need your five minutes.

Auctions require donations and donations come from each and every one of us using those five minutes to identify and ask one person/business/neighbor/ friend/family member to contribute. People like to help but often times need to be asked. Please don’t decide someone would not be interested in making a donation, let them decide. Use your social network and let’s make the 2018 Fall Fundraiser auctions something to remember.

What sells:

  • Unique experiences, such as behind the scenes tours of places of interest
    High end restaurant gift cards
    Vikings, Wild and MN United tickets
    Vacation stays (think cabins, condos and B&Bs)
    Concert tickets and theater tickets
    Must have electronics
    Well curated gift baskets centered on a theme
    Service gift certificates for dog walking, yard work, contractor work, car detailing, home cooked and delivered dinners – anything that will save you time
    Good wine, beer and liquor

Please have the donor fill out the Gift-in-Kind Form so we can properly record the gift and thank the donor. Customize the example solicitation letter. Any questions please call Jason Patalonis, our Auction Chair at 651.221.0273. You can make a difference and it only takes five minutes!
