Crawfish Swim-A-Thon

A silent auction will be held in the gym during the Swim-A-Thon! Invite your friends and families to come out between 9:00am-12:30pm.  We will have AWESOME items from local businesses (local to BR, Lafayette and Nicholls locations!) and gift baskets put together by swim group divisions. Invite your friends and family to stop by and place some bids!

In addition to the auction, we will be selling raffle tickets and 3 lucky swimmers will get to "Pie-Face" Coach Jayme, Coach OJ and Coach Thomas at 12:30pm (want to pre-purchase your raffle tickets and get a bonus one?  Click Here).

How do I solicit an Auction or Event Donation?

  • Start with the Letter for a Potential Donor.  A sponsor can complete a printable or online donation form.
  • Be creative! What product/business would you want to see as an Auction item? What local business would benefit by being placed in front of our community of swimmers and families?
  • Do you have a connection with a company that could provide snacks, menu items, drinks or goody bag items for the event participants?
  • Each location will have an Auction Chair Person / Committee to help organize the event. This information will be published once these contacts are established.

There are 2 ways to participate

  • Participate in a group putting together a large (awesome) basket for the event
  • Solicit individual auction items 
  • More details on both

I've gotten an auction donation, what's next?

  • Please enter the information on the website using the In Kind Donation form. This can be done by the entity making the donation, or you can complete this after receiving a physical form or donation item from them. This is how the donation will be associated with your Swimmer (make sure you have Registered a Swimmer account first; if you did not, contact admin and we will do this manually in the system).
  • Items can be dropped off starting March 11 during practice.  Please print/attach the email confirmation you recieve after submitting it on the online form.  Or attach the hardcopy of the form if soliciting in person.  (Baton Rouge- Mon-Thurs, 4:00-6:00pm at the Info Booth;  Nicholls / Lafayette, to your coach or designated Auction Coordinator for your location. 
  • Your fundraising totals will be updated post event, based on what the auction item sells for  (ie, if a certificate you solicited for the auction sells for $30 at the event, your fundraising total will be credited for $30 regardless of the certificate value.  Auction sales are credited toward fundraising requirements but not Swim-A-Thon Top Raisers prizes.
