2015 Big Little Silent Sports Auction
Auction held in conjunction with the annual
Red Smith Sports Banquet
Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Radisson Paper Valley Hotel, Appleton
The annual Red Smith Sports Award Banquet is celebrating 50 years! This winter sports gathering is the largest annual sports banquet in the state. Big Brothers Big Sisters has been honored to be a charitable focus of a local sports personality event for over 20 years. The Red Smith Sports Award Banquet has supported Big Brothers Big Sisters by allowing us to hold a sports memorabilia silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters. Nearly 1,800 banquet attendees, as well as the general public, attend the auction and bid on the items.
Last year’s auction raised more than $15,000. Big Brothers Big Sisters annually serves more than 500 children in our community. At our average cost of service of $1,000 per child, the auction directly enabled us to reach and serve 15 more children who want and need a mentor.
We are accepting donations to this year’s auction. Donations come in all shapes and sizes, including gift certificates, sporting and event tickets, apparel, jewelry, hotel and spa packages, autographed sports memorabilia, sports equipment and much more. Click here for a donation form!
