Reach out to potential donors for adult packages
Do you know someone who owns or works at a restaurant or winery? Ask if they can donate a private seating or tasting.
Do you have a time share that you won't use next year?
Do you know someone that works at an exciting company, or perhaps, you do? In the past, tours of "hip" companies have fetched great bids in our live auction. Youtube, Skywalker Ranch, Salesforce Tower, etc.
Even if you are not affiliated, you can approach them directly for donations! Restaurants, pro sports tickets, amusement parks, etc.
Donate your own experience for kids/ families
Create a cool playdate for for a few lucky kids in your child's classroom?
Pizza party for the whole family?
Day at the beach?
Organize a bike ride?
What is something special that your family can offer that other Clarendon folks would love to bid on?
