Silent Auction: Fill a Purse for Change at Equity Day & Convention
The idea behind the theme is to replace a basket with a purse and fill it with items for the auction. As a branch, you can purchase a designer bag and just put that bag in the auction to raffle as another option. We suggest that you provide one fabulous purse — filled or not filled — with a value of at least $150.
Philanthropy VP Deborah Wooldridge will provide the auction with a Luis Vuitton bag or a Michael Kors bag to get things rolling. Remember that Vera Bradley bags are always a hit and catch the interest of bidders.
Another thing we will be doing this year is a Race for Change Contest among the Districts. As tickets are bought stickers will go up on a board throughout the conference and we will announce the District winner at the ending session. Many organizations do this at international, national and local conferences and this will let everyone have a chance to be philanthropic.
Let’s bring our checkbook and support AAUW funds through giving! Our goal at the Conference this year is $5,000. I know we can do it because we all want change for women and girls!
