Seeking Member, Corporate and Club Donations For Our Silent Auction

To help defer costs and have some fun I’ve put out a challenge to all Toastmasters in the District to form Division teams fill their baskets, boxes, or containers with items and creativity to be auctioned off at the District Conference Division Challenge. 

Corporate sponsors will have Recognition at the Conference.

We are accepting silent auction items of almost any description, not limited to the following items…but we hope to spark ideas and your generosity:

How Does A Silent Auction Work?

  • Tables at the Spring Conference will have tables with items in two groups.
  • Print your name and bid on the list in front of item being auctioned off. (A minimum bid and/or suggested cost of item with description will be displayed)
  • One group will be auctioned off before the business meeting on Saturday. (This gives members to purchase items who are attending Option1 of the conference)
  • The 2nd group of items will be auctioned off at the end of the conference on Sunday.
  • Register your name and contact at the Silent Auction desk (for committee to contact you if your bid won)
  • Pick up and payment of highest bidder can be made before you leave the conference before the business meeting or following conference on Sunday
