National Seminar Silent Auction

Do you have Fred’s Pants (the pair of jeans Fred left behind after an event that have become the go-to item in Guild silent auctions for the past several years) ? What about something that represents your state or your Area?

Are you a Quilter or other Crafter who is willing to donate an item to support Handbell Musicians of America?

Yes?  Then we need your help now for the annual National Seminar Silent Auction.  This is the major fundraising event each year for the the Guild and the funds raised at this year’s auction will support the Heritage Fund.  This new operating endowment was established by the National Board of Directors to provide sustaining revenue for the day-to-day operations of Handbell Musicians of America.  Learn more about the Heritage Fund and our campaign to build it here.

So, be creative and support the Guild by getting involved with the National Seminar Silent Auction.

You don’t have to be at the event to support the Silent Auction. Just send something ahead to be included.  Our hope is to have something from every Area and possibly even EVERY state!
