We all receive requests to donate items for silent auctions, but we are hoping that because this is OUR association, you will move this request to the top of the pile. We are writing to ask for you to donate an item for the silent auction that will be held during FIAE’s Annual Convention. The proceeds from the auction support us and allow us to do a good job through programs such as the Professional Development Fund.
The auction will be held on November 15th and items will be displayed all day with final bidding during the Tuesday night gala.
Need some ideas?
*Do you own a condo that you would be willing to donate for a weekend or more?
*How about a gift basket featuring products from well-known companies in your state (food industry related or not)
*Can you provide a service we can auction off? – be creative!
*Autographed sports memorabilia – assuming it’s from a more broadly loved athlete/team, i.e. golf, NASCAR, Olympics vs. Green Bay Packers or Boston Red Sox.
*These are some popular item suggestions from various sources: a drone, DNA test, designer purses, Yetti Coolers, Wines, Bose equipment.
If you’re still stumped on what to donate, we can make it easy by doing the shopping for you! You donate any amount of money, we will find an item and GIVE YOU CREDIT!
Use the attached silent auction donation form to give us information on the item(s) or contribution you plan to make.
Thank you for supporting FIAE and the state associations. We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
