Silent Auction  Bid bid

The 2020 Carnival Committee has decided to replace our “Virtual Carnival” with an On-line Silent Auction and In-person Picnic during the Labor Day weekend.  Now we need to gear-up the Auction.  We’re excited to already have some unique “experiences”  and are looking to gather more!

Here’s where you come in:  What can you offer for the auction? 

  • How about a Sunset Sail with cocktails on Long Island Sound?
  • A round of golf at Tamarack, Fishers Island, Burning Tree, Winged Foot, Greenwich Country Club and, while we’re at it, how about Pebble Beach or even the “Old Course” at St. Andrews in Scotland- yes- the sky’s the limit if we’re dreaming!  
  • How about a weekend on Cape Cod, in Montauk, the Berkshires or Vermont for the Fall colors? 
  • And for the skiers- Aspen, Breckenridge, Vail, Jackson Hole, Telluride? Or closer to home at Stratton, Gunstock, or Killington?
  • How about Babysitting for a Date Night?
  • An in-home Cooking Demo? A Wine Tasting at a local wine shop?  A Beer Tasting - is there such thing?  
  • A Magic Show for a children’s virtual party?
  • Halloween Decorating for your house?
  • On-shore Fishing Lessons for kids?  

Are you getting the idea?  Our goal is lots of “items’ at a range of price points to guarantee broad participation.
