2017 Donation Wish List

Each year, the auction’s success lies in large part to the donors and sponsors who lend their names, products, experiences and financial support to our cause.  As is customary, we ask TDS families to consider contributing an item to the silent auction as well.  For those who have already contributed, we thank you wholeheartedly.

Donate an item

Don’t know what to contribute?  Here are some suggestions:

  • *Carolina Inn’s Crossroads restaurant– $50-$100 gift certificate
  • *The Spa at Fearrington gift certificate
  • *Locopops $50 gift card
  • *Visa/American Express $100 gift card
  • DPAC tickets
  • Duke Men’s Basketball tickets
  • UNC Men’s Basketball tickets
  • Osmo gaming system
  • InstaPot pressure cooker
  • Gift cards for personal services (e.g. massage, pedicure, cupping!)
  • Beach condo or mountain home
  • Sponsor a teacher — faculty auction tickets are complimentary; however, by sponsoring a teacher, you help offset auction expenses, which can then be put to direct use by the school
  • Tickets to a performance or sporting event
  • Teach a skill — pie-baking?  woodworking?  piano? — anything you have knowledge of that might be of interest to students or their parents
  • A professional experience — e.g. “veterinarian for a (half) day” where kids can observe activities, simple procedures and learn a thing or two in the process
*These items are to be incorporated into experiences or pre-existing auction packages

All donations need to be in hand no later than January 17.  If you have already spoken with Sheryl Blackwell about a donation, there is no need to do more paperwork.
