Silent Auction at the Annual Reunion

At each PSA reunion, we hold a silent auction to raise money in support of the annual fund campaign. It’s a lot of fun and we get to send you home with some wonderful mementos of your time spent at Philmont. We’re asking each PSA reunion participant (or family) to bring something for the auction. It doesn’t have to be anything big (but we won’t complain if it is). Just bring something if you can! Below are some general guidelines, but don’t let these stifle your creativity.

Quality and condition?
It can be new or used as long as it’s in good condition. For example, if your “friend” doesn’t ever get around to using that perfectly good backpack he has, donate it! Or, if you’re still a gear geek who has to have the newest stuff, even though the old stuff it still perfectly usable, donate the old stuff and you’ll finally be able to rationalize buying the new.
Dollar value?
It can be worth 50 cents, $5.00 or $500.00, and anything over, under and in-between.
Handmade creations?
If you’re an artist, bring or send a piece of your work. Few things are as special as something you’ve created. It’s wonderful to see how talented our Philmont alumni are.
Local merchants?
You can ask for donations from area merchants and organizations. Please feel free to show them this letter and have the merchant or organization contact Randy Saunders at 575-376-1138 if they want more information about the organization. Also, have them call Randy if they want the PSA’s charitable organization tax ID number or a copy of the letter.
Corporate sponsors?
Many people have the best luck asking for donations from their place of employment. Many of you probably work for companies that produce some sort of product. Employers are often willing to make donations to organizations close to the hearts of their employees.

Shipping

If you have an item to donate, please ship it as soon as possible to:

Philmont Staff Association 17 Deer Run Road Cimarron NM 87714

It would be great to have it ahead of time so we can prepare a silent auction bid sheet for the item, but if you can’t please bring it with you when you check in for the reunion. If you have any questions about your donation please contact the PTC office.
