Donate an item to be auctioned off during the silent auction at SETAC Salt Lake! The proceeds are used to fund student activities. Successful past auction items have included handcrafts, jewelry, artwork, photographs, t-shirts, hats, office supplies, electronic devices and food items. Items with a regional or nature theme usually do well. Think small or lightweight since most successful bidders will need to pack their item into a suitcase to take it home. Find out more about the silent auction.
