DONATION IDEAS

AUCTION ITEM IDEAS

Our school is fortunate to have families and church members contribute to our auction every year. Unique items, exciting weekend getaways, cool merchandise and valuable services – we LOVE IT ALL! Soliciting donations is a critical part of the auction; without auction items, we would not be able to have an event! Here are some ideas that people LOVE to bid on:

·         Personal Services or instruction (kid’s camps, spa packages, kitchen design, photography sessions, private chef/meals)

·         Sports (tickets, getaways, box seats/suites, VIP offerings, golf, skiing lift tickets)

·         Entertainment (theater/concert tickets, dinner packages, excursions)

·         Art, Home Décor, Jewelry (Original pieces of art, home décor and fine jewelry)

·         Vacations (vacation home/condo, time-shares, airline miles, hotel/rental car certificates)

·         Consumer Electronics (laptops, mp3 players, camera’s, video games/systems, TV’s, home theater)

·         Themed baskets (Home décor, coffee/tea, International food, spa, children’s toys, BBQ items)

An innovative and Fun way to donate would be HOST a one of a kind gathering. You and your friends can get together for a great time and support SACS at the same time by hosting a theme party! These are super fun, exclusive events hosted by families. AS a host you choose the location, number of guests, date, time and them and supply the resources to create a unique and fun party or event. Dates can be mutually agreed upon or select a set date. Bidding can be done by top bidding couples or to the highest bidder. These events are extremely successful and can be fun for everyone involved!
