The live and silent auctions are a significant part of the JDRF Hope Gala, Keys to a Cure on January 18, 2020 at The Westin Jackson. You can play a KEY role in the success of the auctions through your generous donation of goods and/or time. Here’s how:
Donate an Auction Item
Traditionally some of the best selling items at our gala have been upscale restaurant gift cards, unique experiences, electronics, travel packages, golf outings, food or wine. (Please ensure that gift cards or certificates you buy or procure have value well beyond the January 2020 event)
Make a Connection
You don’t have to provide a donation on your own. Your connection to businesses, artists, local celebrities, or professional services can be valuable to our success. In return for their donation, donors receive prominent recognition in our online mobile bidding auction catalog as well as on the item display card at the Gala.
Donate Your Time
Enjoy making new connections, following up on a lead, or have a creative flair for display? We have both short and long term opportunities between now and February 2020 for you to assist us in procuring, assembling, displaying the auction items and thanking donors after the Gala.
EVERY AUCTION ITEM requires a completed Hope Gala Auction ProCUREment Form to be submitted to the JDRF office by December 3, 2019.
