The Annual Silent and Live Auction fundraiser for the AMSSM Foundation will be held during the AMSSM Annual Meeting. Please consider donating an item/package such as:
- Time share, vacation home or golf packages
- Sports memorabilia packages from Universities/pro teams
- Game ticket packages with hotel stays/tours at stadium/arena
- Vintage/unique wines, art, jewelry, etc.
- Course registrations
- I-Pads, E-Book Readers, etc.
Example: 4 tickets to a game alone might go for $100 at an auction; hosting that group of 4 for a couple nights at your home (or getting your local CVB to add 2-night hotel stay), a personalized tour of the arena/stadium or visit with head coach/etc. and/or including home-cooked meals, etc. could increase bids to the $500+ range. Involving your local CVB and local merchants to the package would add value.
A catalog of items included in auction will be posted to the website prior to the Annual Meeting. Donors will receive letters acknowledging the gift for tax-deduction purposes. Winning bidders may claim a tax-deduction for anything paid above fair market value. We hope you'll support this initiative as we seek to raise additional funds for the AMSSM Foundation.
