Silent Auction

We're thrilled to share highlights of our very special Silent Auction. This year's donors feature a wide variety of made in Illinois and local Chicago items. You'll find theater tickets, museum memberships, sports memorabilia, toys, gift baskets, artisan created one-of-a-kind items and more.

You'll find the Auction inside the Nineteenth Century Club. Bidding is open all day Thursday from 8 am until 5 pm. We will take payment by check, cash or credit card so come prepared to bid.

New this year: everything will have a "buy it now" price so you can claim that special purchase right away.

Thank You to all our generous Silent Auction Donors.
