Looking for a unique and different way to collect donations? Why not ask some of your volunteers to host a "Gift Giving Party"?

Similar to a Tupperware party, your hostess will invite friends to attend brunch/coffee...

The "catch" is that instead of the attendees purchasing items (such as Tupperware), they are asked to each bring an item to donate to your events' silent auction. Your hostess could have a lot of fun coming up with a theme for donations. Whether the donations are large and items to be put together in a basket, it will be a different way to attract items and interest in your event. Some attendees may even choose to make a donation for the event instead of bringing a donation. No matter what they bring, yoru event will have the extra exposure, the attendees will hopefully have a fun time, and your silent auction will benefit.
