Silent Auction

Experience the excitement of a Silent Auction! Choose your favorite items on display, and write the amount you want to pay on the bid sheet. Then, the fun begins, and tensions mount, as bidders try to outdo each other to win their items.

It's all for a good cause - proceeds from the Silent Auction go to the operating fund of the 2020 State Conference.

The Silent Auction will be open from 8:00 AM to 6:45 PM Friday, June 29, and from 8:00 AM to 2:15 PM Saturday, June 30. We'll announce the winners Saturday afternoon. Cash, checks and credit cards (Master Card and Visa) accepted. Bid often and bid high!
