Silent Auction


Going Once…Going Twice…

BIG plans are underway, and HEAV is gathering items for its very first Silent Auction. During the three days of the convention—June 5, 6, and 7—attendees onsite will have the chance to bid on fabulous items–large and small–from around the state and beyond! If you have a business—or know of a business–that would like to donate to the Silent Auction, please complete the donation form below, or contact Michelle at

Donate an item here.


Bid Early—Bid OftenGavel--2

See the items on display and place your bids at the Silent Auction area (inside the Exhibit Hall) until noon on Saturday. Then, come back to the Silent Auction area at noon to experience the thrill of a live auction, and bid on more great items! Winners will be displayed and items available for pick up on Saturday, from 2 to 3:30 p.m.   Bidding will be open during regular Exhibit Hall hours: Thursday, June 5,from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 7, 9:30 a.m. to noon. Live auction: Saturday, June 7,  noon to 1 p.m.


What to Donate

The possibilities are endless! Do you have a craft or art creation you sell? Own a business—or know a business you’d like to support? Consider field trip opportunities, paintings, or items from that vendor that you just love. Homeschool or community groups have a great opportunity to bless homeschoolers—AND be blessed themselves! How about putting together a basket that reflects your special region of Virginia? Or a special interest? Consider a gardening or handyman’s basket, a movie night pack, or graduation bundle…your imagination is the limit.


Want to Help?

Love the idea of brainstorming new ideas, reaching out to your community, and being part of the HEAV team? We are looking for a few volunteers to help with the silent auction before the convention. If that sounds interesting, contact Michelle.
