Why we are doing this?

We have been running silent auctions for over 10 years.  It started with the Harvest Festival at our local elementary school. We raised $100 here,.. $1,000 there... and suddenly we were talking real money. After a few years we raised $12,000 - $14,000 dollars for the Arts and Music programs at our kids’ schools. When our kids became part of The School of Environmental Leadership, we were running silent auctions, renting bigger venues, and raising even more money.
