Hi Kellie, Al, Tyler,
Wanted to jump in and offer some resources. If you check out our File Exchange on this site, you will find many templates/documents that you can download for free and tailor to your school/organization for a silent auction.
File Exchange/Auctions: www.ptotoday.com/filesharing/category/10-auctions
Here are just a few examples:
Cover letter for soliciting donations: www.ptotoday.com/filesharing/document/10...ion-request-letter-1
Cover letter for soliciting advertisements: www.ptotoday.com/filesharing/document/454-ad-order-form-letter
Also, there are many documents for general silent auction management.
Good luck with the work you are doing!
