Dear Prospective Donor,


Friends of Freya will be hosting a silent auction August 11, 2022. Our theme this year is TASTE OF DUPAGE COUNTY. We are featuring downtown areas in ELMHURST, VILLA PARK, ADDISON, LOMBARD, WHEATON, GLEN ELLYN, BURR RIDGE, DOWNERS GROVE, LISLE, BENSENVILLE, OAK BROOK, OAKBROOK TERRACE, WARRENVILLE, WESTMONT, WOOD DALE, AND Surrounding towns.


We are looking for items or gift cards to be part of the auction. We will be making baskets for each city that participates to help encourage people to shop in your downtown areas. All proceeds will be used by Friends of Freya to help purchase tech items and sensory items for autistic children in need. These items help children to communicate and develop. Last year we raised over $6000 and we were able to give away 60 tablets to kids in need. 


Our Mission Statement is: To provide equal opportunities to children with autism who are in need of sensory items and electronic items that are required for their educational development. As well as assist in family outings to improve both social skills and family bonding.


In order to make the event a success we are requesting your support.  We are asking your company to donate an item/gift card for the silent auction, or make a cash donation of your choice. Donations can be picked up or mailed to the address above. We are a 501c3 approved charity EIN 86-1394093


All Sponsors will be acknowledged on our website, flyers and TV slide show during the event. 


We would like to thank you in advance for your support.  Please feel free to contact William Guest at 630-701-0161 if you have any questions.
