Silent Auction at the Annual Conference
Share |

General information

Established at the 2012 Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio, the Silent Auction has become an annual tradition. The ideas was first developed by MaryAnne Wilk, a host committee member at The Ohio State University at the time, and past GLACUHO Regional Representative John Biernbaum from Western Illinois University. They wanted to implement a program at the GLACUHO Annual Conference that would promote giving to the ACUHO-I Foundation while also showcasing the talents of our GLACUHO membership. While we accept a wide array of donated items, many GLACUHO members choose to donate their own works of art, photography, or other handmade items to be auctioned. Since it's inception in 2012, the GLACUHO Silent Auction has raised over $13,000.

All proceeds from the Silent Auction proudly benefit the GLACUHO Endowment of the ACUHO-I Foundation.

2018 Silent Auction

We are excited to announce the seventh annual Silent Auction at the 2018 GLACUHO Annual Conference in Bloomington, Indiana. The auction will take place on Monday and Tuesday, October 29-30. All attendees are invited to visit the Silent Auction space to view the items and to place bids. At the conclusion of the Silent Auction, winning bidders will be announced and the winners will be able to donate the winning amount to the GLACUHO Endowment of the ACUHO-I Foundation by cash, check, or credit card.

More information, including the location and times, will be announced in the  conference materials.

Seeking Donated Items

We are currently seeking donations to be entered into the Silent Auction. Individuals, institutions, and exhibitors may choose to donate items and services. Donations are not limited to commercially available items; we welcome your generosity, creativity, and any items you would like to donate! Some examples of past donations have included gift baskets, framed photographs, artwork, concert or movie tickets, etc. One of the great things that makes our Silent Auction unique is that we are able to showcase the incredible talent and creativity of our members through this event, as donations are not just limited to manufactured items. We gladly accept your personal artistic creations, too.

If you would like to donate an item for the Silent Auction, please complete the form below and bring the item with you to the Annual Conference. You will be able to drop off the item at the Registration booth when you check in for the conference.
