Silent Auction Items Needed!

We are asking for your help and hope you will consider donating a gift certificate or other item(s) for the silent auction. Items representing your favorite local business, sports teams, or individual specialty is always very popular and will offer you an opportunity to get your name or business out into the community. All donations will be recognized on the bid sheet and in the evening program. This is our way to say “Thanks!” and encourage leadership to support your business.

Gift certificates are very popular, however, combining a gift certificate with a product is also a great way to get people’s attention.

Thank you for your kind consideration of our request and investment toward the good work of JOSHUA. We appreciate your generosity. By supporting the 14th Annual JOSHUA Banquet, you are joining the other voices and efforts that help build a just and compassionate community for everyone in Brown County.

We ask that all silent auction items are at the JOSHUA office by Friday, October 26th. You can mail in your silent auction donation to JOSHUA at 130 Saint Matthew Street, Green Bay WI 54301. Please attach this donation form with your silent auction donation.

Dropping your silent auction item off?? Please bring it to St Matthew Parish Center (130 Saint Matthew Street, Green Bay WI) during hours of operation (M-Thurs 8am-4pm; Fri 9:30am-Noon)
