Need silent auction items & packages for Kiteboarding 4 Cancer

Our biggest annual fundraising event, Kiteboarding 4 Cancer, is right around the corner and we need help procuring silent auction items and fundraising prizes. This year, I came up with a THEME CONTEST for obtaining items since it always seems so hard to do.

Here’s how I’m hoping it will work (since we’ve never done this before) 🙂
  1. Reach out to businesses or group of friends and ask them to create a package/basket for the silent auction based on a theme (ideas below).
  2. That business/group puts together a creative package based on the theme, names the “basket”, with a list of included items.
  3. The TOP 3 most creative silent auction/prize baskets receive Bronze Sponsorship level (branding on banners, presence at the event, 10×10 booth space) at Kiteboarding 4 Cancer!!
The value of the package/basket should be a minimum of $250 and no limit!
If you can’t get a group or business to donate, individuals are welcome to donate individual items, products and services as well. It all helps! I really appreciate your help! Here are some theme ideas, and of course you can add your own!
  • Spa Day: massage, facials, hair cut/color, pedicure & manicure, spa days, etc.
  • Travel: Travel Vouchers to ANYWHERE, Resort weekends & B&B stays regionally and afar!
  • Wine & Beer: Packaged with related items, tours, glassware, etc. or alone.
  • Active Experiences: Surf lessons, Kiteboarding lessons, Kayaking, Whale watching, Pilates, Yoga, Bike tours, etc…
  • Garden: Everything for growing, sustaining, cleaning, feeding, and living in the garden.
  • Outside & Active: Cameras, Packs, apparel, equipment, electronics, etc. for being active in the outdoors.
