THE SILENT AUCTION

 

 

The Silent Auction is the Alumni Association's biggest fundraiser of the year.  In 2021, this event brought in over $12,000 for scholarship funds.

 

Donations of items are collected throughout the year from generous community members and alumni. Basements, garages, and storage areas are pressed into service as the contents continue to grow.  The committee gathers, a few weeks prior to the auction, to work on displays and pricing.  Easels and tables must be rounded up, signs made, and fliers passed out.  Above all, everyone desperately hopes for a sunny day!

Typically, the auction has been held on the lawn of the Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall on the same Sunday as the Great American Picnic in mid-July.  In 2021, due to the picnic being cancelled, the Silent Auction was held the Sunday of Recognition Week in the Hall of Philosophy. The 2022 Silent Auction will be held in the Seaver Gymnasium at 55 South Lake Drive on Sunday, July 17.  The auction will be open from noon until 4:00.  The current date and times are also available on our full calendar.

Auction items are often offered for sale throughout the year on our website.  If you're interested in seeing what is currently available for purchase, click here.

Donations can be made to the Silent Auction at any time.  Contact Pat McDonald at pat.plpmcd@gmail.com for drop off and Silent Auction information.  You may also contact the Alumni Association at alumassocexecsec@gmail.com for further information.
