A large portion of the evening for guests, and for our fundraising efforts, comes through the auction. We are pleased to offer guests the chance to bid on items through live and silent auctions. Items range from spa packages to gift baskets to local goods and gift certificates. Larger auction items in previous years have included vacation packages, sports packages, jewelry, and other high-ticket items.
Our dedicated committee members seek the items for the auction. And it is through the support of businesses like yours that we are able to have a successful auction and event.
Gift funds generated for WVU Medicine Children's, like those from our annual gala, support: Patient Services (Child Life program, bereavement support and purchase of specialized equipment to care for the newborn of less than a pound to the towering teenager); Research (to help find a cure for childhood diseases); and Support of Pediatric Programs (such as the Psychosocial Services Support Team (PSST) for patients and their families).
You can help our children by becoming a donor for our annual gala through our auction. If you are interested in donating an item to our auction, please contact your gala committee or contact Lora Edgell at 304-598-4346 ext. 2 for more information. We hope you will take a moment to become a VIP for our children and help make the miracles happen!
