AUCTION LOTS

[Lots 1-25]  [Lots 26-50]  [Lots 51-78] [Silent Auction]


Unlike the LIVE auction, the SILENT AUCTION does not accept Internet bids or absentee bids. Silent Auction lots are sold on site before the Live Auction starts. Bidding increments are much smaller than with the Live Auction. High bidders pay for the lots they’ve won on site, and take the lots with them.

We post a listing of the SILENT AUCTION lots primarily to put the focus on our generous donors. We will not be providing pictures of the Silent Auction lots other than a few scans that some donors provided.
