Auction & Donations

The success of the Gala is dependent on our hundreds of generous auction donors. Auction donations are requested in the Advancement Office by Wednesday, March 13. Each donation must be accompanied by an Auction Item Donation Form. Thank you!


Auction Item Wish List

Check out a list of our most desired auction items here.  Please note, this list is not all-inclusive and we are happy to receive any donation you are willing to give.


Instant Wine Cellar

Be a part of creating one of the Gala’s most unique auction items – the Instant Wine Cellar! When you donate a bottle of wine, it will be combined with other wine donations to create an “Instant Wine Cellar” which will be auctioned off at the Gala. Over the years, the Instant Wine Cellar has become a favorite part of the SMA Gala but we can’t make it great without your help! Donate one bottle, two bottles or a whole case!

SMA is thrilled to, once again, partner with Bouzy Wine and Spirits (at Orchard and University) who is generously offering a 15% discount on bottles of wine purchased for the SMA Instant Wine Cellar and the best part is you don’t even have to go in! Just call Bouzy at (303) 798-4357 and they will take your order, fill out the donation form and hold each bottle for SMA until just before the Gala.

If not using Bouzy, please make sure a donation form accompanies your generous donation. Forms can also be found in the office of each division.


Hosted Parties

What are Hosted Parties? They are “sign-up” events that parents, or a group of parents, agree to host for as many people as they find appropriate for the specific activity/party. Attendees can be adults, kids or a combination of the two. You choose the pace and all the details; the maximum number of people, who can attend, and the price per attendee. Costs incurred for parties are covered by the host(s). 100% of the money raised benefits tuition assistance and program resources. Host parties are not only fun, but also a GREAT opportunity for community building.
