Silent Auction

The CERF 2015 Silent Auction will raise funds for the CERF Odum Fund to support CERF student participation and development activities. A variety of items will be on display and available for bidding, including original artwork created for CERF 2015, and other items such as books, scientific instrumentation, outdoor sports equipment, gift certificates and CERF memorabilia donated by members, conference vendors and businesses.  Join us for a good cause, and great deals on highly prized items! 

How can I donate an item?
There are several different ways to go about donating an item to the silent auction. If you will be donating an item for the silent auction, you may indicate so on your conference registration form. If you would like to donate an item after you have completed your online registration, you may contact the CERF office for assistance in adding your item for donation.

How do I collect my winning bid?
Auction winners can pay for items in the conference registration area, and all payments must be received by 3:30 pm on Thursday, November 12.
