2020 Procurements Annual Fundraiser Hero

Annual Fundraising Auction

We are starting to collect items for our annual fundraising auction.  The auction seems far away on April 4th, but work is starting now on the venue, food planning, and most importantly, obtaining items for the auction! Over 200 items were collected last year for the auction.  This is where we need your help. We are asking that every lacrosse team member collect auction 3-5 items between now and mid-March. Items that went for great auction prices last year included: 2-night stays at hotels, spa gift cards, restaurant gift cards, grocery gift cards, practical items we all need (gift cards for haircuts, grocery, etc.), brewery and winery baskets, experiences (golf, fishing, paddle-boarding, Tower Theatre, etc.), jewelry and more.

It is important to start procurement now as Bend businesses often run out of their funds to donate by the time the auction rolls around. We love completed baskets, but please don’t worry if your items collected aren’t in a theme. Our auction procurement team can assemble things that work together as we get closer to the auction. Remind businesses that their donation is tax-deductible and have them complete a procurement form and return with the donated item.

You can contact Angie Klee for procurement form, to drop off items, or if you need a pick-up we can arrange to have someone do that as well:  angie.klee@bendlacrosse.org, 949-500-6818.
