Hello Wonderful School Nurses!
The time has come to start gathering your donation items for the annual CASN Silent Auction!
We would love for you, or a group from your school, to contribute a gift basket, or other donated items for the attendees of the Fall CASN to bid on.
WHEN: The CASN Silent Auction will take place during the Colorado Association of School Nurses' Fall Conference November 3rd - November 5th, 2023, in Loveland, CO.
WHO: You may participate as an individual, or with a group, by creating a basket, or any type of item/items, which we will display during the conference on Saturday and Sunday. These baskets and gifts will be available to bid on and the proceeds will go to the organization (see below for our WHY).
WHAT: Some examples of past items donated: themed “baskets” (such as sports items, Colorado themed, game night, date night, spa day, movie night, etc.), recipe and cooking combos, room décor, a week in a condo, a computer/laptop, table settings, gift certificates, candles, craft items like: quilts, cards, scarves, etc., or anything else that you think people would like to bid on. The more items we have, the more you can participate and bid on the silent auction!
WHY: All the proceeds go directly to the Bertie Eby Scholarship Fund. This is a fund to help school nurses further their education in nursing! We awarded 37 CASN scholarships for a total of $9,250.00 for Colorado nurses to attend NASN 2019 in Denver. We have not had the silent auction since then due to COVID limitations, but let’s not let that stop us this year!
HOW: Your basket and other items can be delivered to the conference registration desk any time on Saturday, (Do NOT deliver to the hotel reception desk, please.)
