CES Silent Auction Goes Virtual

2021 CES Silent Auction


On behalf of the CES Fundraiser Committee, please consider participating in this year’s Silent Auction at the OSU Extension Virtual Annual Conference (December 7-9, 2021) – an opportunity to support a good cause. Chi Epsilon Sigma (CES) sponsors this annual fundraiser to recognize an Extension support staff member via the Chi Epsilon Sigma Extension Support Staff Excellence Award.

BIDDING IS NOW OPEN!

Please join the friendly competition – it’s a great opportunity to find special items for the holiday season, winter birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and beyond! Place your bids 24/7 now through December 9 via Excel Online at: http://go.osu.edu/2021cesauctionbid

You will need to be logged into your Office 365 account with your OSU credentials. Use the Excel features to navigate within the document, rather than your browser buttons (the document will work both online or in the desktop app). Any guests at the conference who wish to bid may have an OSU employee place bids on their behalf (be sure to provide an email on the bid sheet!).

Bidding will close on the last day of the conference (Thursday, December 9) at 11:30 am. Please check the Excel file often to see if you have been outbid, as no bid confirmation/notification emails will be sent during the auction. Final winners will be notified by email after the auction closes, and everyone may also continue to check the bid sheet (will simply change to read-only format upon closing).

We are also accepting cash donations directly to the fund if you prefer to give your support via that option: http://go.osu.edu/CESGiveNow

Donations and Mailing

We would like to extend a huge thank you to those of you who donated all the unique and thoughtful items to be auctioned! We have 18 wonderful selections to bid on from both office teams and individuals. We will contact the winning bidders and donors directly in order to arrange for shipping on Thursday, December 9 asap after bidding closes and payment is received (instructions will be sent).

For any questions please contact the CES Fundraiser committee chair, Terri Fisher, fisher.456@osu.edu

Thanks very much, and have fun shopping/bidding!
