Silent Auction

Silent Auction_ (2)Silent Auction_ (5)Is your house full of turtle tchotchkes? Are you so busy at work that your vacation home is sitting empty? Or maybe you’ve picked up some great hand-made art pieces on your travels that just don’t quite fit the décor of your home? If you answered yes, consider donating your items to our Silent Auction! Your auction items will help the 2018 SERSTM by offsetting the costs associated with hosting this meeting. Donating and purchasing items is a fun and easy way to support the 2018 and future SERSTM meetings.

In order to expedite the submission of auction items, we request that you download and print the auction form, provide the requested information and submit it with your item when dropping off your auction items. Please submit one form for each item.
