Over the last few years, the silent auction at Secret Garden Party has quickly become a highlighted part of the evening. Each year the offerings seem to grow in both quantity and quality and this year is no different. Whether it’s the thrill of the win that propels you or a desire to get a headstart on holiday shopping, this year’s auction is destined to wow!
Auction categories range from “Adventures & Events” to “Sip & Savor” to “Kid Tested Mother Approved” and more! Open as soon as the party begins, the auction will run until 9:30. But don’t expect a sedate and calm bidding experience. Last year as the clock began to wind down we saw a few bidding wars on vacation packages and summer camps break out and expect the competition to be just as intense this year too!
While a rule allowing staff to shop the auction early does not yet exist, we’ve certainly whittled the auction booklet down to some of our favorites.
– We’re not musical prodigies but the Gibson Les Paul signed by a major Nashville recording artist just about has us convinced that we could go platinum one day too. We don’t want to give away all the fun details but this artist has no shortage of nominations and wins at the Grammys, ACMs, and Billboard Music Awards!
– The low country boil for 10 will have friends crawling out of the woodwork like they would if your Powerball number were called! With a shrimp boil provided by Five Senses and a quarter keg of Bearded Iris Homestyle you’ll feel like you won the lottery this summer.
– Don’t know about you but we love lunch! The lunch bunch package includes gift cards to some of our favorite local lunch stops including Tasty Table, Alley on Main, Maple Street Grill and more!
– Reeves Sain Milkshakes for a year – need we say more?
