I am passing this along if, by chance, we can assist with your June 8th golf outing this year at Oak Valley. We can provide you with enough products for a complete silent auction and we have items that would compliment a live auction as well.
We have a par three promotional cruise that is very popular as well. The golfers love it because there is a guaranteed winner. We will draw a name out of a hat of all golfers that land on the green ($10 per golfer per attempt). We will need to collect from the first 40 golfers to cover our costs. Any proceeds above and beyond that will be given to your organization. The cruise entitles the winner and a guest to a 5-day/4-night cruise in an entry level cabin based on double occupancy from one of 3 cruise ports including: Port Canaveral, Florida; Miami, Florida or Long Beach, California.
Here is a sample list of some of our products for a silent auction or live auction:
