Annual Benefit Auctions are held both in Rutland and Burlington each Spring. Some items that are popular include Vacation Getaways (such as weeks or weekends in summer cottages, winter ski vacations, condos in the south or NYC/Boston weekends). Some of past donations include season ski passes, condos in Florida, cottages in Maine and cottages on the Cape. We have had donations of original arts and crafts, gourmet dinners, handyman and handywoman work, interior painting, carpentry, antiques, fine jewelry, tickets to sporting events (Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, Giants, Knicks) and much, much more. The Sky is the limit!
There are a number of ways to bequest funds to Dismas. A simple bequest made by naming Dismas in your will is one way. Setting up a gift annuity to provide you and your family with funding for an agreed period of time with the balance eventually going to Dismas. Irrevocable trusts are another effective way to provide for your family and still support Dismas.
