*Silent Auction closes at 4:30 pm.

Bring your friends and family, and raise money for a great cause!

The Silent Auction runs January 29 - February 24, 2018

Final bids will be taken at the Jing Ying Lunar New Year Celebration on February 24 (bidding ends at 4:30 pm).

We are taking donations until December 9. Not only will you help a great charity, you can also promote your business. We have listed some of the items here. As soon as you make a donation, it will be put on display; so the sooner you donate, the longer our students and guests will be able to view your donation. We welcome your business cards and/or literature to make available to students/bidders.

Proceeds benefit The Bernie House, a long-term transitional house for families fleeing domestic violence. Go to for more details.

The following list of donations is a work-in-progress and may not reflect the donations we currently have.

Jing Ying Institute will also donate 100% of our Lunar New Year Self-Defense workshop to The Bernie House, as well as a portion of proceeds from some of our other fee-based Lunar New Year workshops. For more details about the Lunar New Year Celebration open house and workshops click on Chinese_New_Year.

Thank you's: Thank you to Patti Petti for her help in putting this silent auction together. Her endless energy, enthusiasm, talent, time, and hard work is much appreciated and a huge part of its success. The framed displays were created and put together by Patti and give the auction a beautiful finish. She has also handcrafted amazing themed-blankets for this auction and others. Wendy Ng and Peggy Blackman have also been incredibly generous, donating many terrific items for this auction and others. Nancy Rando has championed local businesses/artists through our auctions. So many other people have been helpful, from donors to bidders. Thank you so much!!
