The entertainment at the Gentle Doctor Benefit includes both a live auction and large silent auctions. On average, there are 200 silent auction items and 14 live auction items. The items being auctioned have all been generously donated to the College of Veterinary Medicine.
We accept auction item donations throughout the year. Auction items that tend to sell well are pet-related items, vacation packages, gift certificates, jewelry and gift baskets of all varieties. If you have something you would like to donate for auction, please complete this form. We ask that all items donated for auction have a fair market value of at least $25 and be new. The College reserves the right to use donated items in other venues if the items are deemed inappropriate for the Gentle Doctor Benefit. Donors will be listed on the website unless they wish to remain anonymous. If the donor wishes, a link can be included to their website from the GDB website.
Auction items are accepted all year long. Please contact our special events coordinator for questions regarding donations.
