United Way of Sumner County is holding a Silent Auction Basket Contest for the 2023 Gala in the Vineyard asking companies to donate a Silent Auction Basket with a value of at least $25. Baskets will be judged on how well their theme coordinates with your company. i.e. a Realtor might create a basket of home decor items and/or gift certificates for home services; an automotive company might donate a basket with car accessories and gift certificates for car washes or car services; a medical company might put together a spa basket with items to pamper and gift certificates for spa services; a food services company might donate a basket with cooking items and certificates for cooking classes or restaurants; etc.
Baskets will also be judged on presentation, so put them in a nice container and make them look pretty and appealing to bidders, complete with cellophane wrap and bow! Entries should include a list of all items contained in the basket and the total estimated value of the basket.
- Every entry will receive a Bonus Point towards our Company of the Year Award!
- Winning entry will be announced on social media and at the Gala event.
- Companies can earn 2 extra Bonus Points toward our Company of the Year Award if they donate a *Live Auction Item valued at $1,000 or more. Live Auction items can include things such as travel packages, sporting or cultural event tickets/packages, musical instruments, autographed memorabilia, unique experiences, etc. *Limited spots available
