Silent Auction 2024

15th Annual Haiti Mission

Golf Tournament & Bec’s Silent Auction

  May 13, 2024



Hello Friends:

We are entering the home stretch for our annual fundraiser and have exciting news to share.

The silent auction has raised $1,450,503 over the past 14 years with the major portion of the donations coming from our sponsors since 2016.  This year we have once again been blessed with numerous sponsors which have helped us near our goal.  As you know, God has a plan far greater than ours.  If we are able to receive minimum bids on all the auction items we will surpass our goal of $192,000 which will provide for the matching funds to continue to build four homes a month over the next year.  Any amount raised over our goal will be used as matching money for additional homes. 

We trust that many of you will bid on or BUY items and pass the email on to others that you know so that HMI can continue to fund our home building project which serves the poorest of the poor.  Our construction team of 70 men completed home #351 in April! 

Since our last email, Laura has been gathering additional items for the Silent Auction and entering the information into our web based list of items.  Thank you to all our generous donors, especially Danielle Cheramie, for her annual effort putting together many beautiful baskets that are available for bidding.  We now have 70 items posted that are available for you to start viewing and bidding on the One Cause Website.

I have included a complete list below of available packages and minimum bids.  You will find many popular items that we have had available in the past and many new items, including a Grand Isle Offshore Fishing Trip for 5 and a Deer Hunt on a private farm in Mississippi.

PLEASE NOTE: Once again, we are using the online company (One Cause) so you will need to register to bid.  BUY NOW pricing has become very popular so we have decided this year to include a BUY NOW price on nearly every item! Items will be sold at BUY NOW prices beginning immediately.
