Silent Auction

Silent Auction will be open until our Anniversary dinner. We are raising funds to assist with the costs of our 50th Anniversary Celebration to be held on May 20-21, 2023. Any funds remaining after the celebration costs are covered will go to the Scholarship Fund. Please go to the KSNA website (www.kennedysociety.org) or Facebook page for details. Would you help us by donating an item (or items) or experience? All donations are greatly appreciated and are 501(c)3 tax deductible. Your donation can be an item as simple as a belt buckle or kilt pin, or it can be something such as a kilt, a cooler, a painting, or even an exciting vacation. It does not have to be a Kennedy or Scottish item; it can be almost anything that you would like to donate to the KSNA. (If you are considering a cash donation, please look to the Friends of the Oak program that is also on our website and Facebook page.) A donation form link is below for the KSNA-IWT silent auction. Simply fill it out, then email it to us and we will handle the bid operation. You will be able to see how your item is going to look going into the auction. Thank you for considering our request to help the KSNA celebrate this important milestone. We are very proud to be one of the earlier established clan societies! Please direct questions to either Bob Davis or Chris Kennedy. Their contact information is on the Silent Auction Form.
