Stay tuned for new and exciting opportunities at FSM's Greatest Gathering and Auction this year!

  • We will gather again this year at International Market Square in Minneapolis.
  • Silent Auction Only! With much success last year, we will again be offering a silent auction only. There will continue to be a myriad of fantastic items to bid on.
  • Online bidding process! To make the bidding process easier for the silent auction, we are again partnering with BidPal. BidPal is a mobile device-based bidding system that provides better anonymity to the user for the items they want to bid on and the dollar amount they are willing to pay. In addition, this system is more environmentally friendly as it eliminates the use of excess paper.
