We are now accepting donations for the 2018 Online Auction!

We are currently seeking donations of gift certificates, services, merchandise, or unique experiences from local businesses and individuals for our 2018 Online Auction, which will run from April 9th to 23rd. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for student financial aid, which will help us ensure that all students have access to our outstanding music programs and performance opportunities, regardless of their financial situation. The VYOA Online Auction is a great way to gain visibility for your business while supporting a worthy cause. To make an item donation, click the link above for a convenient online form or email rachel@vyo.org.

We are also seeking volunteers to help with all aspects of the auction, from asking businesses for donations to help with mailings, and everything in between. Email rachel@vyo.org if you’d like to get involved!

Questions? Call Rachel Hershy at (802) 655-5030.


Q: How can I help the VYOA reach their auction fundraising goal besides participating in the auction?
A: The biggest thing you can do to help is to tell your friends, family, and coworkers!  Forward an email, share on Facebook and Twitter, or pick up the phone and tell them.  The more people we have participating, the more likely we are to reach our goal.  You can also make a donation via the “Donate Now” button on our auction site to boost us toward our goal.  Thank you!

Q: Are proxy bids allowed?
A: Yes.  A proxy bid is when you place a bid for the maximum amount you are willing to spend, then let the system bid for you up to that amount.

Q: Can items be shipped to me?
A: Most items are available for shipping for an additional charge.  Some larger items and baskets cannot be shipped, and that will be stated in the item description.

Q: What payment methods are accepted?
A: The VYOA receives the largest percentage of funds if you choose to pay by check, but your your convenience, we can also accept all major credit cards via Paypal.  You do NOT need a Paypal account in order to pay by credit card.
