Become a Sponsor or Donate to the Auction
Donate an Item
It is our sincere wish that your business would join Artist Boat at Float the Boat again in 2018 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.
You can download the Auction Item Donation Form here >>>
Please join us as a sponsor for our upcoming annual Float the Boat fundraiser as we honor Ms. Sheridan Mitchell Lorenz for her steadfast support of Artist Boat and our promise to protect the Gulf Coast through land conservation and fun, educational, inspiring adventures that spark creativity, awareness, and action. We hope you will partner with us through the donation of an item for our live or silent auctions. Proceeds from the auctions are a significant portion of revenue from Float the Boat, and we deeply appreciate every donation.
As always, your name, or the name of your business, will be recognized at the event, but this year, ALL items received before October 1st will also receive acknowledgement in the Event Program.
