Live Auction

The live auction, a traditional component of SFS meetings, is a fun and lively fundraising event where donated items are auctioned off to raise funds for graduate student awards. The amount raised during the auction will be matched dollar-for-dollar by SFS to support future student attendance and presentations at these meetings. Don’t miss the live auction this year! The committee already has fantastic donations, and invites SFS members to donate artwork or other items (pottery, paintings, photography, etc.). Also, don’t miss those embarrassing or antique ‘must haves’ donated from your colleagues.

If you have something to donate you can bring the item to the Live Auction drop-off table at the meeting or contact the live auction committee for other arrangements. The live auction is currently scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, May 21st. Credit cards, cash, and check will be accepted. Please contact the live auction coordinators for more information: Jim Junker (james.junker@msu.montana.edu) and Anita Baxter (ambaxter@oakland.edu).

Also, you may ship items ahead of time to be held at the Hyatt:
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront
c/o Jim Junker (or yourself if you prefer)
225 East Coastline Drive
Jacksonville, FL 32202
