Silent Auction Items

Businesses and individuals have offered a selection of items for the silent auction that will be open during the event.

“I’m organizing a great collection of silent auction items. We have already received some one-of-a kind works of art and some very useful items. Of course, I’d love to add a few more things to assemble some really special themed baskets,” says event volunteer Carol Hamann, who has been titled as the “Silent Auction Queen.”

To donate items for use in the silent auction, contact the United Way office at 828-883-8822.
