The Silent Auction at American Martyrs Parish Fair (October 21 and 22, 2017) is the largest auction in the South Bay, thanks to the donations from our parishioners and community businesses.
The Parish Fair Silent Auction committee collects items year-round, however our real preparations begin over the summer. As you do your summer cleaning, please think of us. We would so appreciate your favorite treasures, collectibles or furniture.
You can drop items off at the Parish Office or for larger items please call Tina Sarafa, 310-502-5792, or Julie Brawn, 310-650-0172.
Our parishioners are very generous and creative with their donations. Below are some of the items that we need every year.
Children's Items - Legos, American Girl dolls, Nintendo DS games, Wii games, bikes, toys, books and more! All are appreciated. Also if you have any connections to Disney or Nickelodeon we would welcome the support.
Cultural opportunities abound in our great city and throughout the Los Angeles area!
Do you have season tickets to the theatre, Hollywood Bowl, concert tickets to upcoming shows or the ability to arrange a tour of a special museum collection? If you don't have tickets in hand, we can help you create a wonderful display to showcase your donation.
Items for Tweens - Any donations to help fill this section of video games, ipods, computers, fun clothing, sports items and beauty and hair products would be so appreciated.
Get-aways - If you have a vacation home, condo or time share you would like to share with us we would so appreciate it. We are happy to create a gift certificate and beautiful display to showcase your donation. Also, airline miles are always appreciated to add to any destination get away.
Doesn't a massage sound divine? Gift certificates for spa or beauty services would be much appreciated. A donation of some of your favorite products makes a wonderful gift basket. We are happy to create a basket full of your favorite things.
Sports Memorabilia and Sports Tickets - If you don't currently have your tickets in hand, we are happy to make up a gift certificate for you.
Holiday Decorations - It won't be long before we are thinking about the holidays! Halloween, Christmas, Easter and more!
Fine Wines and Food - Did you know that wine is one of the biggest sellers at our Silent Auction? Any donation of wine, nonperishable food items to basket, or gift certificates to your favorite restaurants would be greatly appreciated.
Do you have a special talent you might consider sharing with the parish?
Every year our special experience section at the Silent Auction is one of our most profitable. We are looking for hosted special dinners in private homes, themed parties, pie or cake of the month or anything unique and experiential you can think of!
