Online Silent Auction
Help our communities by donating an item.
Contribute to the silent auction by bidding or donating an item. This annual event held at the League Convention, this year October 3-5 on Mackinac Island, presents a great opportunity to bring home unique gifts representing communities across Michigan, or you can highlight your community, local businesses, and local talent by donating an item. We will again offer the online feature to our auction process. You will have the option to contribute and bid for donated items online prior to the live silent auction event.
Funds raised through the MML Foundation's auctions help support the League's mission to enhance and develop leadership in local government. For more information on donating an item, call Deborah Walton-Medley at 734-662-3246.
