Silent Auction to Benefit the AHEAD Scholarship Program

An exciting part of each summer’s AHEAD conference is the silent auction. AHEAD members donate quality items from their college or university, hometown, something they have made, etc. to be bid on during the conference. The proceeds from the silent auction are used exclusively for student and member scholarships. Since 2002 nearly $40,000 has been raised for scholarships through the silent auction. We hope you will participate in this important endeavor.

The following items have been popular silent auction gifts in the past:

Apparel from your home institution
Books relevant to disability issues
Theme park tickets
Baskets with regional edibles
Arts and crafts representing regional areas
Gift cards to national stores or restaurants
Items or travel or trips

There are two ways to get your silent auction gift to the conference. If you plan to bring your item with you to the conference, please fax the Silent Auction Donor Sheet to 765-285-5295. Then simply drop off your item at the Silent Auction Table when you pick up your conference materials.
