4th Annual Turners Warehouse Ornament Auction and Contest 2022

4th Annual Turners Warehouse Ornament Auction and Contest 2022
Benefiting Toys for Tots 

The Auction has started!! Bidding on Facebook HERE

Live online auction will be held Nov 29th through Dec 4th 7pm (AZ time)


What is the Turners Warehouse Ornament Auction & Contest? The contest and auction was started as a way for us wood turners to make a fun item around the holidays to challenge ourselves, maybe win a prize, and most of all help raise money for a great charity!   

How it works-
You make an ornament any way you want, print out the entry form and send it to Turners Warehouse. (remember you are donating your ornament for auction and will not get it back) We will be accepting ornaments through November 27th and the live online auction will be held Nov 29th through Dec 4th 7pm (AZ time).

Each ornament sent in will be up for auction. Following the close of the auction the top bidders will then make their donations directly to Toy for Tots through our fundraising page (link below), which also has some great info about Marine Toys for Tots. And of course if you would like to make a direct donation you can do so anytime!

Once the donation has been made, the ornament will be swiftly on the way to its new home! 

Contest details:

There is also a contest element to make it a fun challenge for everyone! We bring in a few outside judges to pick winners and honorable mentions for fun prizes in 6 categories!
1. Youth (17yo and under)
2. Beginner (turning for less than 6 months)
3. Wood
4. Resin
5. Hybrid
6. Hollow-form

You declare the category you want to enter on your entry form, and can enter one ornament per category per person. We welcome as many ornaments for the auction as you would like to send as each one helps to drive donations, but we do ask that you don't enter multiples in the contest portion so that everyone has a good chance at an awesome prize!  

Additionally, there will be some random draw prizes that every participant will be entered to win so don't be intimidated and just have fun! 

We also ask that all ornaments be lathe turned, but other than that the only limit is your imagination!

Your ornaments and generosity have blown us away in years past and we know we are going to get a lot of awesome ornaments this year too!  We want you to have fun for a great cause, and hopefully win a cool prize as well so get turning!


(We reserve the right to add or amend any rules as needed).
