Description: Program: Silent Auction
New for this Year: The ‘Dollar ($) Table’ – place small items on the Dollar Table that you want sold for one dollar ($1.00). After the auction begins; if a person wants an item, they just place a dollar in the Cookie Jar on the table, and then can pick up the item right afterwards, no need to wait for the end of the auction! This is a great way to donate those small items (pins, magnets, patches, etc., etc.), for which it would be too much trouble to list on a bid sheet.
TATC’s 11th annual silent auction will be held during the membership meeting. We are asking members to donate their Time, Talent or Treasures that can be auctioned off to the highest bidder. When you are shopping, on vacation, cleaning out your garage, upgrading your gear, or practicing your creative talents, please keep the TATC silent auction in mind. Bring your items to the auction and with your help, TATC will again present a wide selection of auction items.
Our annual silent auction helps us support Pretlow Library by providing the funds for our yearly donation. It also helps to assist our endeavors in the local community through our volunteer work in local city, county and state parks. Local outfitters are donating not-to-be missed items for bid! And we encourage you to donate good stuff too. Suggestions are food items, gift baskets, gift certificates and gently used items - REMEMBER - one person’s junk may just be junk.
See https://tatc.wildapricot.org/resources/Documents/Bid_Sheet_2019.pdf to print out a bid sheet to accompany your item.
