HomeGarden Show Silent Auction 2018

Silent Auction

Our Silent Auction is justifiably famous!  It is our primary fund-raiser, and its proceeds benefit many nonprofits in the Valley.

We traditionally have offered quality house-goods, fine art, restaurant certificates, retail donations and certificates, wine, garden items, and more.

This year our Auction will focus on these areas:

1.  The Best of the Region's Experiences and Adventures - these are donated tickets, events, and certificates from some of the premiere Institutions in Carmel Valley and the Monterey peninsula area.

2.  Club Experiences - we will repeat last year's very successful donations of club members' time to provide unique activities, classes and events available for bidding.  These will include a ceramics class, an airplane flight over Monterey, calligraphy classes, and much much more.

3.  Local Fine Art - many of our talented artists in the Valley have donated some of their art to the auction.

4.  Wine - an ever popular category with donations from our local wineries

5.  Baskets of goodies - made possible by the generosity of our local retailers in combination with other donations

6.  Raffles - we will repeat our popular raffles of specimen trees, potted container plants and garden art, with raffle tickets at $5.00 each.  Raffles will run at 12:30 and 3:00 on Saturday and Sunday.

7.  Exclusive CVGC Ceramic Garden Art -  a new feature this year, our ceramic garden art by a local artist is sure to add a splash to your garden or plantersl.
