DONATE AN ITEM TO THE ACPF ANNUAL SILENT AUCTION

The Silent Auction is an engaging way to support the mission of the ACP Foundation at Annual Congress and everyone can participate. Through generous donations, bidding or encouraging others to bid higher you can be part of the ACPF mission!

 

Last year, the Silent Auction raised more than $27,000 to invest in the advancement of venous and lymphatic care. With your support – we can raise even more!

 

Step up, do your part and donate old jewelry you no longer wear or artwork you want to rotate out of your home or office! If you have a unique hobby from crafting pens to collecting autographs, now is the time to share with the world. Help move venous and lymphatic care into the future.

 

Directly donate an item – anything from a medical product to jewelry, décor items, timeshares, or one of a kind items.

 

WHAT IS THE SILENT AUCTION?

 

The 11th Annual Silent Auction is a fun and entertaining way to support the important mission of the ACP Foundation, whether you donate or bid on an item. The Silent Auction will be held over the course of the ACP’s Annual Congress (November 8-10, 2018  in Nashville, Tennessee, culminating with a live auction at the “Off to the Races!” celebration on Saturday night.

 

In the past, donated items have included medical devices, services and training, vacation getaways, art, jewelry, sports memorabilia and more. In 2017 through our generous participants and cash donors, the ACP Foundation was able to raise more than $25,000 to go towards what’s new and what’s next in venous and lymphatic disease.

 

WHY DONATE?

 

While a festive event, the Silent Auction provides resources for the ACP Foundation’s mission to advance the highest standard of care for patients with venous disease through investment in research and education. The funds raised are invested directly into projects which promote the specialty and its growth. By donating to the Silent Auction, you are helping improve patient care related to vein disease.
