I would ask the participants to list the retail price of their donation so you will know how to mark items.

The Kiwanis in my town do a call in auction each year and the people making the donation set a value on the basket, certificate, etc.

Are you going to tie the silent auction to an activity at the school, like a spring concert or parent/teacher conferences? If that is the case you would probably set up after school and have it go through out the event and either do the drawing that night or contact the purchasers in a couple of days.

If you aren't going to tie it to an event to get the parents "in" the school I would hold it over a couple of days if there is room to keep up the display.

cinco de mayo

We haven't had any real family events so I'm thinking of doing a CINCO DE MAYO fiesta and maybe tying the silent auction in since most of the parents just drop the kids off and run in the mornings and most of them go to afterschool and are running home afterwards
