Silent Auction

The annual event serves as a fundraiser for the arts programs at five local schools. The silent auction is comprised of pieces donated by participating artists. The schools which benefit from the silent auction are Lord Baltimore Elementary School, Southern Delaware School of the Arts, John M. Clayton Elementary School, Phillip C. Showell Elementary School, and Selbyville Middle School. The silent auction will take place on the Bethany Beach Bandstand from 10 am – 2 pm. 


This event would not be possible without the help of our many wonderful volunteers each year! Volunteer positions are available throughout the day to assist with parking, artist check-in, information booths, silent auction, and clean-up.
