Midwest Chapter MLA 2017 Fundraiser

Submitted by Edith Starbuck, 2017 Silent Auction Fundraiser Co-Chair

Planning for the second annual Midwest Chapter MLA fundraiser to support scholarships and awards is well underway.  This year it will be a silent auction.

How can you help?  Consider donating a silent auction item, asking a business, author or artist to donate an auction item, and most importantly – bidding on the silent auction items during the upcoming annual conference!

Silent auction donation parameters:

  • High quality and easily packable
  • Register your commitment
  • Send photo of item by September 15, 2017
  • Silent auction coordinators reserve the right to select the final items for the silent auction
  • Donated item must be at the conference – bring the item with you or ask a colleague to bring it

If you ask a business, author, or artist for a silent auction donation:

  • Let us know that you’re willing to ask
  • We will supply the information kit needed (coming soon)
  • Provide a photo of the item by September 15, 2017

A great big thank you to those who have already volunteered to donate a silent auction item!  We will share photos and more information as we get closer to the conference.

Let’s make this scholarship fundraiser a great success, together!

We look forward to hearing from you.
