Brevard Music Center Silent Auction Returns 2019

2019 SILENT AUCTION BID RETURNS!

It is that time of year again!   Your Transylvania NAACP needs your support! We have three fundraisers.  This silent auction is just one of this year’s fundraisers and it is just like last year! The Brevard Music Center has graciously donated tickets to a wonderful concert as a Transylvania NAACP fundraiser. Look for emails in your inbox to remind you later this week!

We have a variety of tickets for the July 7

SAINT-SAËNS ORGAN SYMPHONY
Sunday, July 7 – 3:00 PM | Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium

PERFORMANCE & ARTIST DETAILS
Ken Lam, conductor
Rubén Rengel, violin

DUKAS The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
VIEUXTEMPS Violin Concerto No. 5
SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3, “Organ”

Unlike most silent auctions all you have to do is email your bid to us at transnaacpauction@gmail.com by midnight July 3. It is that simple!  We get the tickets free and the money raised helps fund the NAACP for 2020.   You help the NAACP and get the benefit of seeing a great concert in return! Can we count on your support?

We are auctioning 60 tickets at all levels. Winners will be invited to a reception before the 3 p.m. performance. (More details to come at that time) We will be drawing a raffle ticket winner at that event as well.

We have:

10 $54 tickets (great orchestra seats)
10 $44 tickets (excellent seats)
10 $38 tickets (sides, still good!)
10 $28 seats (inside back, can still see and hear wonderfully)
20 $20 lawn seats (outside and really fun because you can sit and sip your beverages of choice)

We’d love it if you’d at least pay the ticket price and more if you’re wiling!

How to get in the game:

Send us your bid by e-mail no later than midnight Wednesday, July 3 and let us know what level seats you want, how many and how much you are willing to donate. It’s as simple as that. We will notify the winner on Thursday, July 4 and arrange to get your tickets to you.

You can buy as many tickets as you want and the sky’s the limit. You can give us $1,000 for a $20 lawn seat, if you like, and we will thank you heartily.

Please feel free to share this with your friends! The more the merrier!

THANKS!
