In-Kind Donations

Donating to the silent auction is another way to promote your business while supporting Junior Council. Featuring a wide range of local and international brands, the auction is consistently an event highlight. A mix of products, experiences, services, and more contributes to the evening’s excitement and enhances the guest experience. Popular companies that have taken advantage of this opportunity in the past include Dyson, Fairmont Hotels, United Airlines, Lettuce Entertain You, and Chicago’s professional sports teams, to name a few. Many businesses have been donating to Snowball’s silent auction for years—a testament to the value of this type of exposure.

Recognition & Benefits

All silent auction donations are recognized with the donor’s name and graphics on tabletop displays at the event and our mobile bidding platform. Additionally, you’ll gain visibility among our digital audience, as we promote the auction catalog heavily on social media and to our email list.

Make an Impact

The silent auction plays a key role in the success of our fundraising efforts, and making a tax-deductible donation demonstrates your business’s commitment to giving back. The most recent in-person Snowball auction raised close to $50,000 alone, capturing over 80% of its fair market value.
