FEBRUARY 23 - 26, 2021
CHARITY SILENT AUCTION
A silent auction is an event at which items for sale are displayed for attendees to assess, bid upon, and purchase. However, unlike most auctions, there is no auctioneer present with participants placing their bids silently and anonymously on a bid sheet using a bidding number.
Our speakers, sponsors and supporting organizations are donating their wines, services, winery visits, etc. that will be auctioned through this website to raise funds for the three NGOs that Wine Future has selected to help.
