Donate an Item to our 2012 Auction!

November 16, 2011

“And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…”
from “Sea-Fever” by John Masefield

The Center for Wooden Boats’ 36th annual fundraising auction and dinner celebration, Steer by the Stars, is Saturday, February 18, 2012. Your generous donation provides CWB with much-needed operating dollars, so we can:

  • Provide hands-on instruction in sailing and maritime skills to kids of all ages
  • Preserve small craft heritage for all to appreciate – no admission fee!
  • Make access to water available to our entire community
  • Change lives one boat at a time!

We are seeking auction donations is three main categories:


Big-ticket or “experience” items: weekend getaways, specially prepared meals with a twist (like our Classic Tugboat dinner!), special excursions, etc. We even auction off boats!
Unique experiences often trump “stuff.” Have an idea? Let’s talk!


Generally smaller items (in size, not importance!); items are often combined into fun packages. Gift certificates, handmade or one-of-a-kind items, program memberships, etc.
We love restaurant certificates for our Feeding Frenzy!


Bidding is hungry work and our Dessert Dash is a huge hit! Donate a dessert to serve 10 – the more variety the better.

Auction donations need to be received by January 27th in order to be included in our catalog. We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization, and you will receive a donation acknowledgement letter for your tax purposes. Our tax ID number is 91-1061721.

A 2012 Procurement Form can be downloaded here (and don’t forget to keep a copy for your records). If you have multiple items to donate, please submit a form for each item. You can scan and email the form back to us, fax it to 206-382-2699, send it to us by postal mail, or drop it off at CWB in Seattle.  If you have any questions, please email, call Aislinn at (206) 382-2628 x22, or visit our website.
