Auction of Promises 2019
Saturday, November 9th at Salisbury Racecourse
Dear Hunt Supporters,
The bi-annual Promises Auction is one of the most important fund-raising events for the Wilton Hunt. Without it, and the numerous other events organised by the Hunt Club, Masters and various committees, the Hunt would not be able to function in its current form. Past auctions have generated £25,000+ and, with your help, we hope to make 2019 a record one!
You can help in two ways:
Firstly by reserving a table and inviting your friends to come along and bid on the night. If you are unable to attend we will be mailing out the Auction Catalogue nearer the time and you will be able to submit postal/telephone bids.
Tickets are £30 per head including a welcome drink, wine and tapas supper. There is also a cash bar.
See below to get your tickets.
Second, we are seeking promises of all shapes, sizes and budgets that we can auction on the night. Do you own a holiday home, shoot, fishing or stalking you could offer for auction? Or perhaps you could offer a service, product or food?
Promises don’t need to be exclusively hunt-related and the more unusual and unique the better. This year we are aiming to keep the auction to a maximum of 50 lots so the evening doesn’t get too late. We will also be running an online auction for smaller promises so nobody misses out. You can download a copy of the last Auctions promises below if you need inspiration. You can offer as many promises as you like - all will be very welcome!
Iona Forge has kindly agreed to coordinate the promises. Please email her with your suggestions.
