Support Our Troops Silent Auction

Darin Burk

On Saturday, November 11, Support Our Troops will conduct its second major fundraiser of the year, the Silent Auction. The core mission of SOT is to provide for the material, physical and emotional needs of our military men and women at home and abroad. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the silent auction are used to carry out the core mission of SOT.

On Veterans Day the Clubhouse hallways and meeting rooms will be filled with numerous donated items such as gift baskets, high-quality, handmade arts and crafts as well as certificates for goods and services from numerous Denton area businesses. Bidding will begin at 10:00 a.m. Bid sheets will be available adjacent to each item for continuous bidding throughout the day and evening. Bidding will close promptly at 9:00 p.m. The winning bidders will be notified Sunday, November 12. The 50/50 raffle drawing will be held at 9:10 p.m. November 11, and the lucky ticket holder does not need to be present to win.

A SOT table will be set up in the Clubhouse each Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. October 2 through 29. Please stop by and pick up a donor information form, drop off donation items and/or purchase tickets for the 50/50 raffle drawing. SOT members will be on hand to answer questions and provide additional information about the auction.

This year SOT will also be providing donated item pick-up service. The SOT members will be able to assist you with arranging a convenient pick-up date for any items you wish to contribute to the auction.
