Donate to the Silent Auction

This is not your average Silent Auction!

Bidders will get a preview of what the stocking includes but the rest will be a surprise!

We’re looking for businesses to donate a stuffed stocking. The contents are your choice and can be themed around your business or not themed at all! We want to see a few items peeking out of the top of the stocking but the inside should remain a secret.

Deadline to Confirm Participation: November 23rd

Donors Receive:
  • Business Name next to image where items up for bid are presented.
  • Business Name with Silent Auction info on NYFS website.
  • Social media posts announcing participation along with a sneak peek of donated stocking or gift.
  • Monday, November 23rd - Deadline to confirm participation
  • Wednesday, December 2nd - Deadline to drop off completed stocking at NYFS.
Silent Auction Timeline:
