May 2024 Club Meeting and Spring Auction

May 11, 2024 @ 6:00 pm 8:45 pm

Our May Club meeting will include brief club proceedings and then we will jump right into our Spring Auction (which means, yes… we are having more than one auction this year!)

Our club auctions are some of our biggest Club fundraising activities. We will have a “Live” auction segment to go along with the Silent Auction. The success of this event in the past has been thanks to the charitable donations of our friends and members.

CLICK here to view several piece of lapidary equipment that will be featured in the live auction.

Donations are greatly appreciated, so please reach out to program@minnesotamineralclub.org if you have donations or would like to suggest businesses for us to reach out to.

To make the donation process run smoothly, we encourage members to print bid sheets and fill out the following fields: “Donated by”, “Description of item”, and “Minimum Starting Bid”. MMC volunteers will assign a lot number at the silent auction. Click here to download Bid Sheets.
