2019 Raucous Auction

Thursday, November 21, 5:30 PM

at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center

To support our ongoing work, we invite you to join us for the 15th annual Raucous Auction!

The Raucous Auction showcases one-of-a-kind experiences alongside unique pieces of art and other creative items. The funds raised support our ongoing operations as well as special projects.

We hope you’ll plan to attend the event, but you can also take part in the online auction from anywhere. For the first time, our silent auction will take place entirely online, so you can bid from home and still win big! Simply click below to register with an email and start bidding.

Register now and start bidding!

How does it work?

  1. Register in advance for bidding! We’re using a new online bidding platform this year, and all bids must be made online (even those made in-person at the event). The only info you need to provide is your name and email. Please CLICK HERE to set up your bidding registration now, so you’ll have more time to enjoy yourself at the event!
  2. Buy a raffle ticket (or two!) for your chance to win our 2019 members’ project, UNCHARTED.
  3. Make plans to attend and invite your friends! You can find the Facebook for the event HERE.
  4. If you can’t be there in-person, bid on your favorite items in the online auction, buy a raffle ticket, or make a donation. The auction site is now open for bidding, purchasing raffle tickets, and making donations.

Our goal for this year’s event is $20,000. Admission is FREE but a $20 donation or purchase is suggested.

This year’s theme is UNCHARTED, the 2019 members’ project, which explores imaginary maps—maps of an idea, of feelings, of make-believe places, or of new ways to represent visual information that guides or describes the world.

Schedule of events:
5:30-7:00 PM – Live & Silent Auction, in the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, Charlottesville
7:00-9:00 PM – Afterparty, in the Virginia Center for the Book, located on the ground floor of the Jefferson School City Center
