Join Washington Wild's Auction Committee

This event is Washington Wild’s largest fundraising and social event of the year. Our Annual Dinner brings together members, supporters, and volunteers to celebrate and contribute to the work of Washington Wild. This event includes live and silent auctions, delicious food, and a dessert dash. This year the event is on October 19, 2013.


The Auction Committee helps plan and prepare for the Annual Dinner. The Committee meets as a group once per month to discuss planning needs and progress. Committee members also work individually, at their convenience, on tasks discussed during Committee meetings.

Tasks may include: soliciting donations and sponsors, calling guests to RSVP for the night, creating bid sheets for the silent auction, organizing bid items, and designing a decorating scheme for the evening.


Requirements: You do not need a background in event planning to be a part of the Committee! You just need to be willing to offer your time, skills, and experience to help make the Annual Dinner and Auction a giant success. That being said, individuals with a background in event planning, hospitality, or decorating are certainly encouraged to join the Committee.


Schedule: Committee meetings one hour long and happen at the Washington Wild office. The Committee will meet the second Monday of every month at 6:30pm as follows:
• April 8
• May 13
• June 10
• July 8
• August 12
• September 9
• October 7
• October 19, Day of Auction
Please be sure that you are available to attend at least four Committee meetings and that you are available for the day of the auction: October 19, 2013.

Individuals can work on their assigned tasks at their convenience. Certain tasks must be completed at the Washington Wild office during typical business hours (M-F between 9:00am-5:00pm).

If you would like to help but are unable to commit to the Committee’s schedule, please ask about shorter-term opportunities.

Join or login to comment.
