Donate Items to Live or Silent Auctions

Throughout the year, we seek out unique experiences and auction items for Time of Your Life. Are you a business owner with services or items to donate? Do you have any great connections to unique experiences or products? Please considering making an auction item donation to support the mission and ministries of St. Teresa of Avila Parish. 

Donate Items for the Auction


Volunteers are asked to work within the following areas: Live & Silent Auction, Ticket Sales, Marketing, Volunteer Coordinator, Registration, Entertainment, Raffle, Food & Beverage, Games, Video/Paddle Raise, Sponsorship and Technical Support. The committee is social by nature and attracts a fun group of people who gather at meetings to plan a great party and energetic fundraiser. All committee members are asked to help procure auction items and to invite guests to the event.

Volunteers are also needed the night of the event to help with setup, run of show, greeting guests and registration. If interested in volunteering, please contact Deana LaBrosse dlabrosse@outlook.com.


Platinum, Gold and Silver Level Sponsorships are available for this year’s Time of Your Life Gala in support of St. Teresa of Avila and the outreach ministries.  Sponsors will receive premier marketing and promotional recognition before, during and after the event through a variety of digital and printed platforms.  Sponsors are a key component to the success of our event.  Click here or contact Janel Palm, janelpalm@mac.com, for more information about Sponsorship Opportunities.
