Our silent auction at Open House - Sunday, Oct. 11 - is always a big draw and a terrific fundraiser. We're hoping that you will help us once again! We're staring a little early to be sure we have the most amazing selection of items to bid on.
One of the easiest ways you can help if you can't decide on a basket theme of exactly what to get is to sponsor an Open House basket. We’ll shop for the items and build a beautiful themed basket. At Open House, we'll post your name on it as the donor.
We're always looking for many different items, but a special attraction to bidders are the unique themed baskets our generous supporters have come up with and these complete, themed baskets are our greatest need - wrapped and ready to go. But we also need individual items that can be bid on as a one-of-a-kind or which could be added to baskets that Mylestone puts together. Popular themes are always horses, food, baking and holidays - but please don't limit yourselves to these. Be your creative self!
We also welcome quality artwork, tickets to events, museums or the like, trips, fabulous dinners, overnight stays at bed and breakfasts, time-shares, gift certificates, etc. Whatever would be a special treat for you or your family will undoubtedly inspire others to bid.
This lovely basket from last year combined two big favorites - Halloween and baking!
All you really need to do is contact us and let us know how you’d like to help and we'll take it from there! Thanks so much for helping the horses.
p.s. The deadline for Open House basket donations is Sept. 15th.
