Silent Auction

The silent auction table holds a variety of useful and exclusive items awaiting bids by attendees.

A silent auction fundraiser is part of the evening's events at the Leopold Restoration Awards ceremony and dinner.

The Friends of the Arboretum welcomes donations of goods and services. Funds raised will support Arboretum activities and projects.

Popular silent auction items include original artwork and photography, natural history books and field guides, outdoor gear, specialty foods including wine, gardening tools and supplies, gift certificates to restaurants and shops, and outdoor themed items.

The auction is an excellent opportunity for donors to be visible at our program, as we will display your donated items with literature you provide about your organization.

Individuals or businesses interested in donating items to the auction are asked to email the friends or call (608) 263-7760 to determine if the item is a suitable match.

The Leopold Restoration Awards Silent Auction could not take place without the generous support of our many donors. Many thanks to the following individuals, businesses, and organizations for their support for the 2014 awards event:
