Live & Silent Auction


Our silent and live auctions are two of the most popular treats of the Trash Makeover Challenge. Individuals and businesses donate wonderful wares and experiences such as weekend getaways for you to bid on and win. The silent, online auction opens for bidding on Friday, October 29, at high noon. It will close immediately after our live event, on Saturday, November 13, from 7 till 8:30pm.


Some of the great donated items available include:

  • Gift certificates to some of Austin's best restaurants

  • Handmade artwork and jewlery

  • Local music and books

  • Massage and spa treatments

  • Weekend lodge getaways

You can bid or select the Buy Now price to make sure your selection is locked in. The few items that will be auctioned during the live auction segment of our Trash Makeover Challenge event, November 13, will end online bidding the day before the event. Top bidders will be notified and will start at the top of the live auction bidding.

All funds raised by these auctions will support the good work of Texas Campaign for the Environment for clean air, water, and land! Thank you very much for your support!
