Fundraising Raffle and Silent Auction

FOBA will hold a Raffle and Silent Auction at the 2024 conference. Proceeds will support the Colleen Cavin Fellowship program as well as support the running of FOBA’s biennial conference. Raffle tickets will be available from volunteer sellers every day of the conference. Contributions for the raffle will be on display during the conference and drawings for winners will take place each day. You can participate in the Raffle and Silent Auction by donating items before the conference and/or bidding on them during the in-person conference.

Raffle and auction items can be contributed by friends, participants, supporters, and instructors. From light to heavy, small to big, we welcome items of many varieties. Examples of donated items may include book or paper related tools, books, art papers, works of art, ephemera/extras from your studio, or even unique book arts experiences, such as a tour of a private collection or guest stay at participants’ studio/homes. One-of-a-kind offerings like these can be a hit with bidders, and whatever your imagination deems suitable, someone will treasure.

A big part of any collecting is giving! Please consider donating to the auction. Your donation of raffle and auction items is tax deductible. If possible, please notify us in advance of your donation so we can prepare to display your item(s). Donation items for the Raffle and Silent Auction may be brought with you to FOBA or shipped by 6/15/24.
