The success of our event depends significantly on donations received from businesses and individual donors like you. Each spring, the members of Submarine Officers’ Spouses’ Association (SOSA) join with the Khaki community and the submarine wardrooms and submarine support organizations to raise money for local Kitsap charities and the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation (DSF). The 2014 Silver & Gold Charity Auction is scheduled for March 8, 2014 at the Plaza Ballroom on Naval Base Kitsap – Bangor in Silverdale, Washington.
The Silver & Gold Charity Auction is seeking donations of auction items such as merchandise, services, or gift certificates. Monetary contributions are equally appreciated. All businesses and individual donors contributing items will be listed in the Auction program.
The Silver & Gold Charity Auction is a great advertising opportunity drawing nearly 500 people every year. We publicize our event not only locally, but also through military media and publications. Not to mention the ongoing advertising capability through our website www.sosawa.org.
All proceeds from the Auction will once again benefit local Kitsap County charities and the Dolphin Scholarship Foundation (DSF), which awards scholarships to sons and daughters of members of the submarine force needing financial assistance for college. SOSA, in conjunction with the Chief Petty Officers’ Wives is honored to host the 2014 Silver & Gold Charity Auction, which, in 2013, raised just over $38,000 thanks to your contribution. In order for us to continue our tradition of hosting this charity event, we hope businesses and organizations like yours will continue to come forward and show their support through generous donations.
