Silent Auction

Silent Auction 2014

This year, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy celebrates its 25th year of working to preserve the legacy of Wright, considered to be America’s greatest 20th-century architect. Another year of fantastic events and important advocacy work culminates in our annual conference, held this year in Phoenix at the famed Arizona Biltmore Hotel. Past Present, Future: The Conservancy at 25, Oct. 29-Nov. 2, will feature lectures and discussions, tours of seldom-seen Wright works, a gala and awards ceremony, and one of our most important yearly fundraising efforts—a silent auction.

With your help we can make the auction on this 25th anniversary the most successful in the Conservancy’s history. How do we do that? By asking our supporters to donate unique and desirable items that will catch conference attendees’ attention and beg to be taken home. Wright-related books, models, decorative arts and furniture; Arts and Crafts and mid-century modern design objects; and experiences such as exclusive tours, dinners or overnight stays in Wright houses have all been very popular with bidders in the past. If it appeals to lovers of outstanding architecture and design, we’d love the chance to offer it up.

Your generous donation of a silent auction item, or your efforts to arrange for donations, will play a significant role in the Conservancy’s annual development efforts. The proceeds from the auction directly support our mission of preserving Wright’s remaining structures. Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your donation will be recognized in the printed auction catalog distributed to all attendees. After the auction you will receive a written acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes. We are seeking items with a minimum value of $25.

Details on how to donate are provided on the Donated Goods Form below. The completed forms should be mailed with your item(s) to the address listed by Monday, September 1, 2014. If you have any questions, please email Joel Hoglund, FLWBC communications and events manager.

Thank you for your support!
