Silent Auctions During the Show

Place your bids early.
Silent Auction
Silent Auctions will be held Friday, June 5, and Saturday, June 6, 2015. The auction closes at 1 p.m. each day, and is located in the foyer outside the Show floor. Donations will be accepted starting Friday, June 5, 2015. Bid on everything from airline tickets, finished jewelry, artwork, lampworked beads, and more!

Our Silent and Live Auctions will be combined and are held during the Bead Social. Enjoy the double benefits of bidding on something extraordinary and making a generous donation to the Medical College of Wisconsin’s (MCW) breast cancer research program. In 2014, with our combined auctions, we raised over $22,000 for breast cancer research. Handmade beads and sculptural art glass made at our Flame On will also be auctioned off during this evening. Thank you to all of our donors, participants, and our sponsor, Rio Grande.

We will serve coffee and cake, have a cash bar, and offer many door prizes from our exhibitors and faculty. Order your ticket in December, 2014. Those attending will receive a special thank you goodie bag with compliments from our sponsor Rio Grande
