Welcome to WADE, The Washington Association of Diabetes Educators

2014 Silent Auction

Last year’s auction was a great success & we hope to top it this year during the annual meeting.  You can help make this happen by contributing to the fun.  There are many ways to help either with an item or by soliciting contributions.  Last year’s contributions were fantastic with a variety of merchandise.  Some examples and ideas are listed below.  Please think out of the box & use your creativity to help make 2014’s auction fun and successful.


  • Electronics:   Items as I-pods, electronic readers, and cameras are very successful.
  • Arts & Crafts, Hobbies:  Jewelry, wood project, sewing project, knitted item, or other items that you are willing to share.
  • Theme Baskets:  Such as a wine or newborn basket or a wedding anniversary love basket with a romantic weekend get away.  Possibly a hotel would donate the nights and a restaurant the dinner in exchange for the advertisement and exposure of their business.
  • Special Services:  Ideas would be a spa treatment or new hairstyle to extend to potential new customers.
  • Vacation Destinations: Do you or someone you know have a vacation home, condo or time-share?   Please consider donating accommodations.
  • Gift Cards:  Do you have a gift card for a national chain restaurant, bookstore, clothing store, etc. that you don’t think you’ll use?
  • Vendors:  Sales people are often good sources of event tickets – sports, music, and theater.  They occasionally have access to incentive gifts and other items that they might be willing to donate, you just have to ask.
  • Diabetes Education Resources:   Many of you have developed tools for diabetes education. Here’s an opportunity to promote yourself, while supporting WADE.

All proceeds will benefit the Karen Shultz-Goldstein Memorial Lecture Fund & are tax deductable.   Complete the Donation Form  &  e-mail it to  or send to Chris Pelto by regular mail (her address is on the form). If you need help in getting your contribution(s) to the meeting we can help you.  Just indicate that need on the Donation Form.  Thank you in advanced for you contribution.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give in this fun project.  Remember it is a tax right off and a great way to provide high quality education for our members.
