Dinner and Silent Auction Planning

Please enjoy dinner with fellow freethinkers as we help prepare for the All-star conference silent auction (which will be held on July  12th).  Can you purchase and bring an item or two for the following baskets described below?  Humanists of MN and MN Atheists have a goal to raise $2000 at this auction to increase our visibility, hire great speakers and foster community.  We need your help and generosity to build energy for our organizations that continually advocate for your values.

Don’t have any spare funds? Just comb your book shelves, movie cabinets, closets or basements for any related treasures you feel another humanist or atheist might enjoy; its okay to bring gently used items.

Don’t feel like helping to make a basket? Brainstorm with others to figure out an activity or dinner to host, or service to provide as a fundraiser for our silent auction.  Your ideas for auction items and donations are most welcome.

The MNA Board of Directors will provide the baskets to fill this evening and will transport and organize the baskets for the conference.

Here is the list of desired basket themes:

Chocolate Lovers (chocolate truffles, candy, brownie mix, cocoa)

Wine Basket (white wine, dessert wine, red wine, crackers, dried fruit, cheese spread)

Young Freethinkers Basket (kids science books, games, toys, puzzles)

Freethinkers Books Basket (used books, new books, non-fiction, fiction)

Women’s Books Basket (new or used books of women’s interest)

Music Lover’s Basket (new or used CD’s of variety of favorites to the non-theist)

Science Fiction Lover’s Basket (new or used comics, books, movies)

Freethinking Movies Basket (atheist themed or inspired DVDs, microwave popcorn, candy, fleece blanket, cocoa, movie theater gift card)

Craft Beer Basket (variety of single beers of local or international craft, mugs, snacks)

Artist or Crafters Basket (craft supplies, miscellaneous paints, markers, pens, paper)

Organic Food Basket (wine or liquor, crackers, cookies, juices, chocolate)

Coffee Lover’s Basket (ground coffee, mugs, biscotti, napkins)
