THINK ZEBRA! Silent Auction 2013

THINK ZEBRA! Silent Auction 2013
Friday, June 28, 2013
Baltimore, Maryland

At the IDF National Conference, our THINK ZEBRA! Silent Auction is extremely popular and greatly contributes to the success of the weekend. Please support this endeavor in 2013 with the donation of an auction item. We’ve provided a few ideas below, and hope you will consider an imaginative contribution.

  • Crafts or art such as a painting, quilt, jewelry, framed photograph, etc.
  • A weekend at a resort or spa
  • A basket of items with any theme you choose (e.g. your state, jungle animals, movies, a picnic, cooking, etc.)
  • A round of golf at an exclusive golf club
  • Two free airline tickets anywhere in the United States
  • Tickets to a professional sporting or cultural event
  • Autographed sports or entertainment memorabilia
  • An autographed script of a popular television show, or VIP tickets for a backstage tour or to watch a taping
  • Other ideas – get creative!
  •  
    Perhaps you have a connection with a popular celebrity, like an actor, athlete, or other public figure. Many celebrities are very generous if they are contacted in advance. In 2011, just two auction items that involved meeting celebrities raised $4,500 for IDF! Please note that celebrities do not need to appear in Baltimore, and IDF can offer “Meet a Celebrity” packages through a charity website anywhere in the country.

    Donations are tax-deductible as allowable by law, and all auction proceeds will directly benefit IDF’s mission. In appreciation of this support, donors’ names will be recognized in the Silent Auction Booklet and displayed with the item at the auction. If you would like to donate an item, please fill out and submit this form.

    If you have questions, please contact John Boyle, Director of Development, at jboyle@primaryimmune.org or 443-632-2554.

    If possible, please bring your item with you to the IDF National Conference. If you are not attending the Conference, but still want to donate an item, you may send it directly to the hotel, but not before Monday, June 24, 2013. Please send to:
