Our auction, held each year, generates most of the income used to award students from the Bay Area scholarships to attend UW-Madison in the fall semester. The Bay Area Badgers rely on the community to contribute items for our annual scholarship auction. Each year we obtain over $3000 worth of items to auction which is worth $6k (or more) in scholarships.
We are currently seeking donations of items to be included in our auction. In the past we have received donations ranging as widely from signed hockey sticks to vacation rentals to restaurant gift certificates and everything in between. Auction items do not have to be UW-Madison related, as many non-alumni bid on these items.
If there is anything that you would be willing to donate to our auction we would be extremely grateful, not to mention the students who ultimately receive the benefit of your donation. If you donate we are happy to acknowledge your donation on our website and in our monthly newsletters, (unless you prefer otherwise). We will also provide you with a receipt for your tax-deductible donation.
If you have any items that you wish to contribute please submit them here. The auction will be live in early May 2017. We greatly appreciate all contributions!
