silent auction

Donating a silent auction prize is one of the best ways to promote your organization, while helping GSAE raise money for educational programming. Our 2022 Annual Meeting Silent Auction raised over $12,000. Thanks to our friend Tony Rissley and Expo Auctions, the auction is virtual. 

We are still in an extraordinary environment, and we understand that it may not be feasible for you to donate right now. However, if you do have the means, please know we welcome your support. Suggested items include: themed gift baskets, hotel stays, electronic items/gadgets, gift cards

If helpful, we encourage you to partner with a sister property, organization, and/or your local CVB to help promote your area or company during these trying financial times.

Complete the online donation form today or use the downloadable pdf.
