2nd Annual Silent Auction – July 11-20

We need to start advertising for our Silent Auction now and build a frenzy for bidders this year.

To do that, we need your help and your willingness to post on social media, use in your emails, and whatever other way you have available to market this event. Below find some banners you can use. Please also add one to your OSU signature line. If you have a problem downloading, please let Teresa know and she will email your favorite to you.

We also need your items/services for sale. The items/services can be new, used, created, donated, baked, made, and of any genre.

Take a look at our silent auction site; you only need to send a picture, brief description, and estimated value to and Teresa will post it to the site. The more items we have and the sooner we have them, the more excitement we can generate.  This will help you reach your fundraising goal as you will receive 70% of the sale price of each item of yours that sells. The remaining 30% will be pulled with everyone else’s and split evenly between everyone who participates.

Be creative!        Ask your family and friends to donate items!       Tell everyone about the auction!       Post about the auction!

Thank you.
