Volunteer Position Opening: Silent Auction Project Manager

Get involved in your community… a resolution on many 2018 Intention lists.  The impact of our raffle and silent auction at our flagship 5K/10K September event has grown leaps and bounds since introduced in 2013.  The dollars raised through our silent auction helps impact our direct mission of helping kids fighting cancer.  We are looking for a Silent Auction Project Manager (volunteer position) located in Charlotte to head up our 2018 Silent Auction Committee.  Our raffle and silent auction has become such an important part of our fundraising goal and we have some new things in store this year.  This is not a ‘start from scratch’ volunteer position as there is a committee in place and the structure is built.
Position Details:
  • Run monthly silent auction committee meetings
    • Set ongoing monthly committee meeting
    • Primary contact with committee volunteers
    • Go to on all committee questions & follow up
  • Incoming auction item data entry
    • Enter auction items as they come in from committee volunteers
  • Manage business contact list
    • Manage business contacts excel spreadsheet
  • Auction package display
    • Manage the packaging of all raffle & auction items needed for event location
  • February:  Committee meetings and auction collection starts
  • June-August:  Heaviest auction collection months
  • August & September:  heaviest volunteer work due to event date
Thank you to all the volunteers who help make our raffle and silent auction a success each year!  We couldn’t do any of this without you!  More than anything, we have a wonderful group of volunteers and it is a great way to meet new people and develop new friendships!  Please contact Andrea if interested: dre@isabellasantosfoundation.com

ISF Volunteer Opportunity: Auction Committee

We can’t believe that it is almost May.  We have had such a wonderful start to 2017 and excited to dive into bringing you the BEST 5K and10K for Kids Cancer Race in September that you have seen yet.  This is our 10th annual Charlotte 5K and 10K race event and we look forward to celebrating Isabella’s life in the best possible way while bringing our community together.

At the 5K and 10K for Kids Cancer Race we have become known for our SILENT AUCTION.  What started out as a fun idea of having 20 raffles baskets available years ago has blossomed into fantastic way to raise funds for neuroblastoma research and pediatric cancer.  In 2016, our ISF Silent Auction and Raffle raised $80,000!  That is incredible!  Our raffle and silent auction includes beauty/spa packages, sporting events, date night outs, vacations, jewelry and more.  There is something for everyone.  We are looking for new volunteers to join our Auction Committee to help us.  Not only is volunteering for ISF rewarding, we can guarantee you will have fun while meeting many great faces.

“When I originally became involved with ISF, I was a volunteer on the Auction Committee.  Every year we host a huge auction at our annual 5k/10k for Kids Cancer in September.  The auction has become a staple at the race and is responsible for a large percentage of the monies raised at this event.  I felt such pride in being a part of something bigger than myself with a purpose of helping children fight cancer!  I didn’t necessarily have as much time to devote as I would have liked, but I did what I could.  I can truly say being a part of ISF has changed my life in so many wonderful and fulfilling ways! Today, I am the Auction Co-Chair and I couldn’t be more proud to lead such a giving and fun team!   We have several needs for this important committee.  Anyone with a passion to help others who can dedicate some time to helping us create an incredible 10 year anniversary auction this year is welcome!  We have needs for individuals who are not shy to ask for donation from businesses, or who have connections in the community.  We also need those who have time to fill out applications for donations, help organize the auction items, and help us wrap the packages!  We have room for anyone who can help!”  – Andrea Isaac, Auction Co-Chair
We have our first Auction Committee interest meeting on Wednesday May 3rd at 7:30pm.  If you can’t make the first meeting, we can send you details!  Please contact Andrea Isaac for the meeting location, if you are interested in learning more or have questions!  If you are business who would like to donate an item, all items are welcome!  Its great advertising as our auction is in front of thousands at the event itself as well as online!
