Ladies and Gentleman, I'd like to welcome all of you to our first annual fundraising event. We will be doing a silent auction to raise money for our school library. Many people have donated all of the items you see here tonight. All items are in brand new condition. Our biggest ticket item is a boat. This was an anonymous donation. I hope that this person will step up and reveal who he or she is. We would like to personally thank you for this extreme generosity. Please take your time to peruse each item. When you find a desired item, please write your name and your bid on the sheet of paper corresponding with the particular item. There will be a starting bid on top of each sheet. This will tell you the minimum amount you can bid on that item. All proceeds will go to the foundation set up to maintain our school library. This will be our only fundraiser of the year. Auction will close promptly at 7 o'clock pm. All winners will be announced during the dinner portion of the evening. Have fun bidding!
