Call for Silent Auction Donations

Ontario Archaeological Society 42nd Annual Symposium
Hosted by the Huronia Chapter
in partnership with the
Eastern States Archaeological Federation and Huron Wendat Nation
Midland Best Western Highland Inn, October 16-18, 2015
Call for Silent Auction Donations
The Silent Auction is a popular event during the OAS Symposium and a 
great way to raise money for the Society. To ensure the success of our 
one and only annual fundraiser, we need your help!
Please consider donating new or gently used items such as archaeology 
and history books, services, jewelry, antiques, crafts, tools, gift 
certificates, gift baskets, etc. This is also a great opportunity for 
businesses to showcase their products and services. All donations will 
be acknowledged on silent auction donor boards during the symposium and 
in the program package. You will also receive much personal gratitude 
from your silent auction organizing committee!
Last year, several OAS chapters assembled and donated unique one-of-a 
kind gift baskets with items that showcased their chapter and regions. 
These were a big hit with our bidders and we hope that more chapters 
will participate this year!
Silent auction donation items are now being accepted for the OAS 2015 
Symposium. Please contact Ellen Blaubergs at eblaubergs@rogers.com
by October 13, 2015 and include the following information: donor name 
and contact info, description of item(s) to be donated, value of 
donation, minimum/starting bid (if you like). Please also indicate if 
you are bringing the donation to the symposium, giving it to someone to 
bring, or would like to send/courier it. We’ll provide an address if you 
prefer this last method.
Thank you for your support!
