Everyone knows the rally is about fun, education, making new friends, and really what could be better than that?

How about all of that and raising funds to support a great charity?

This year we’re introducing a new program to the National Rally,  and we will be

holding a silent auction to raise funds for the Gary Sinise Foundation.

 

The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of actor Gary Sinise, who has been an advocate of our nation’s defenders for nearly forty years. Its' mission is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.

 

They do amazing work and we’re so pleased to be able to support them. 

  

How are we going to do this?

 

We're going to hold a silent auction during the rally. 

What's silent auction?  A silent auction is a classic fundraising event in which attendees place bids on items we've collected.  Using a bid sheet, bidders compete to win their favorite items and packages. When time's up, the highest bid wins the item, and all the proceeds go to the foundation.

Here’s where you come in....

 

if you would be interested in donating an item or a basket for the auction,

please contact Cindy Lang.

The schedule for drop-off and times the silent auction tent will be open is being finalized,

and will be published here on the web site.
