Online Auction – Item Preview Opens Oct 26  |  Bidding Runs Nov 2-6

Last year’s online auction gave participants extended time to bid and fostered friendly competition in a whole new way – plus, it invited people from across the country to get in on the fun. Because of its success, we’re doing it again!

Dinner & Live Auction – Sun Nov 7 at 5:00 PM

Our in-person event in Werner University Center is back! The party begins with appetizers, a no-host bar, and live music in the lower lobby. Without a silent auction to distract you, the focus is on good company and conversation with fellow SFAS supporters. Then it’s into the Pacific Room for a delicious sit-down meal with tableside beverage service, followed by the one-and-only Paul Schultz auctioning off some terrific live items. Wrap up the evening by raising your paddle in support of Smith Fine Arts Series’ work serving our greater community.

Stay tuned – more info coming soon!


Whether you’re a business or an individual, you can choose to sponsor our Online Auction and receive valuable recognition opportunities before, during, and after the event. And because it’s all online, when it comes to the number of people who’ll see your logo or name, the sky’s the limit! For more information on sponsorship, contact Lisa Schachter at
