One big change is that we are going to move the auction from a smaller booth to be a part of the large ESA Central Booth during the Annual Meeting. This should allow more room to view the items up for donation and to make your bids.
We're actively seeking items to submit for bid. If you have something you would like to submit for inclusion in the silent auction, please contact Chris Stelzig at cstelzig[at]entsoc[dot[org. Some suggestions include:
- Insect-themed merchandise (hats, ties, jewelry, scarves, etc)
- Entomology Books
- Weekend getaways
- Gift certificates
- Collection equipment
- Travel opportunities
This is one of the largest fundraisers that we host each year and it only works if we get great donations, so please consider what YOU have to donate. Call Chris with questions or ideas at 240-696-3741.
