Silent Auction

In addition to recognizing the amazing work produced by magazines across the state, the Excellence Awards Gala also features a silent auction.

All money raised by the auction supports MMPA’s many educational programs throughout the year. By donating to the auction, you invest in the future of our industry.

Your help is critical to the evening’s success.

Each of you (business or individual) has something unique that you can provide to the silent auction. Be creative; a printer may be able to offer free color on a print order, an out-state publication could offer a weekend getaway to its region, or a sporting magazine may offer tickets to a sporting event. Donations must be received by October 10, 2016.

We do ask that silent auction items have a value of $50 or more.  If you have an item of lesser value that you’d like to donate, however, we’re also looking for drawing items to giveaway throughout the evening.
