Silent and live auctions

Through many generous donations, we have about 40 items to auction, most of which will be on the silent auction. Items include sports tickets and memorabilia, Deep Creek Lake mementos and decor, and other unique and interesting items! You can check out all the items on the site!

An elegant evening with Apres Ski theme! 

-a rare winter fireworks show
-a short but impactful presentation by a Paralympic champion and our own Blind Skiers
-a silent and live auction of high quality and unique items
-plenty of time for networking and socializing
AND, you’ll be helping to continue the Blind Skier Program for the next 50 years and beyond!

What to wear: It’s a gala, so some are wearing tuxes and long dresses and furs, and some will be wearing fancy ski outfits. Since most people haven’t been to a fancy event in a while, many are seeing this as an opportunity to dress up a bit. But wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing and most of all…have a great time!
