Donate an Item
It is our sincere wish that your business would join Artist Boat at Float the Boat again in 2017 by donating an auction item. The event is famous for having the BEST SILENT AUCTION in Galveston. Each item is presented with a labeled bid sheet to assist bidders in knowing what the item is exactly and what business was generous with offering the item for the auction. We are happy to arrange for a volunteer to pick up your auction item. We welcome any questions you may have about Artist Boat, Float the Boat, or how your auction item may be utilized for the live auction.
