Silent auction

We are still accepting donation for and invite individuals and businesses to donate to the silent auction.

Items donated to the silent auction provide the opportunity for guests to shop locally, support our neighborhood, and score attractive products and services from nearby businesses and individuals. The silent auction is also an opportunity for an individual or business to donate an item that puts your name in front of 125 people. To learn more, contact program manager Stearline Rucker in the neighborhood office.

In addition to those who donate to the silent auction, the neighborhood greatly appreciates the sponsors of Night on 48th who make this annual event a big success, even before the first guest has entered the door! Please thank our sponsors when you patronize their businesses.

Our volunteer board members set up the event, provide hospitality during the event, and clean up afterward. If you would like to get involved to help host Night on 48th, please contact Stearline in the FRNNG office. (612) 721-5424;

We’re eager to see you on Saturday, November 2nd. Invite a neighborhood friend and join us to have fun and raise money to keep our community safe, connected, and beautiful.
