Silent Auction 2018

Our Spirit of The Mountain Silent Auction event is now underway, and you can help us to top our $3,000 goal!

Here’s how…between now and November 21st, you can make some advance bids on a variety of vacation property rentals and get-away stays.

We are currently accepting themed gift baskets and new/like-new items that can be assembled into gift baskets. The gift basket values are intended to range between $30 – $200, with minimum starting bids of 50% or higher.

Bidding on the vacation and get-away items is now possible, in addition to bids placed by onsite guests at The Mountain. The bidding onĀ  all Silent Auction items culminates at 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 24th during our 40th Thanksgiving Weekend Retreat.

Here are some popular gift basket themes from last year’s Silent Auction:

  • Nature Lovers
  • Many Hands Peace Farm
  • Craft Beer
  • Movie Night
  • Bird Watcher
  • Gourmet food & beverage items from donors’ home cities
  • Wine & Cheese by Candlelight
