2022 CES Silent Auction

Crafting with Gnomies

Extension Colleagues –

We invite you to participate in this year’s Silent Auction at the OSU Extension Annual Conference, December 5-7, 2022! Chi Epsilon Sigma (CES) sponsors this annual fundraiser to recognize an Extension support staff member via the CES Support Staff Excellence Award.


Do you have a unique talent that you would like to share with your Extension colleagues? Do you knit, sew, woodwork, paint, make jewelry, bake, etc.? Are you an independent seller for a company that sells purses, jewelry, and makeup...? Know of local/statewide businesses that would love to donate products or gift certificates for some additional publicity around the state? Whether you are a county- or state-based office, consider this an opportunity for a team project and donate a basket or individual item for the Silent Auction. If there is something unique about your county, consider that as a theme for your donated item(s). We would be thrilled to have a donation from every county/office!

Here are some Silent Auction Ideas! 

Next Steps:

Your donation details can be submitted via Qualtrics Survey until November 18, 2022. The Silent Auction will be live and in person during the first two days of the conference, December 5 & 6, so please plan to bring your basket with you on December 5, the exact drop-off location TBD.

Don’t forget to prepare your shopping list to participate as a bidder, even if you cannot donate this year! These auction items are always unique and thoughtful, and the auction will be held just in time for the holiday season, those winter birthdays, or even planning for Valentine’s Day!

We will also accept cash donations to the fund year-round if you prefer to give your support via that option at http://go.osu.edu/CESGiveNow.


Thanks so very much for your support!
