For those unfamiliar with the event, the auction items, both silent and oral, are solicited and provided by club members. Donated items do not have to be material in nature – members are encouraged to be creative and often showcase/contribute their talents, time or hobbies. In the past, some of our most successful items have been dinner parties hosted by fellow Rotarians, golfing packages, handmade glass platters, gourmet cakes, knitted scarves, flower arrangements, snowmobile tours, and vacation home stays. Just to name a few! As this event is one of our largest fundraisers, and the funds go to our Club Foundation, it is a tradition that each member donates at least one auction item. Members will often team up together to create larger dynamic packages, especially for the oral auction.
