If you are interested in donating an item for the Live or Silent Auction for this year’s Flip Flop Regatta, please download the 2014 Auction Donation Form. Auction items can include, but are not limited to, restaurant gift certificates, trips, hotel accommodations, sports tickets and related merchandise, jewelry, clothing, and beauty or other services.

If you have an idea for something that has not been offered yet — this is your chance to be creative. The more diverse our selection is, the more attention it will garner, and the more money we will raise! If you would like to help solicit auction items, the 2014 Auction Solicitation Letter, provides background on the ALLY Foundation and the Flip Flop Regatta you can share with potential donors.

All Auction Donor Forms must be sent by Monday, July 28, 2014 to:

ALLY Foundation

Boston, MA 02115
Phone: 617-367-2559

Please also include any marketing materials, pictures, brochures or business cards that we can display with the item. This will help us “sell” the item and highlight YOU, the vendor who is graciously donating.

Thank you in advance for your assistance as we look forward to another successful event! Should you require additional information and/or have any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
