Purchasing a $100 raffle ticket during the Silent Auction enters you into the drawing. The winner will be announced prior to the performance; you need not be present to win.

Silent Auction

Each year, our Annual Benefit hosts the largest Silent Auction in the Twin Cities. Bid on packages ranging in value from $50 items to priceless, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Be sure to check out our Sneak Peek Preview of all the items, which will be available online two weeks prior to the event.

For the first time ever, we’ll be using Mobile Bidding for the Silent Auction! Bidding opens online on Thursday, May 9th and will remain open until the Silent Auction closes on the night of the event. With mobile bidding, you’ll be able to bid early and often and keep track of the most in-demand packages. Don’t forget to bring your charged mobile phone to the event!
