Your donation to the FVLD Silent Auction 

directly contributes to research and education

 in venous and lymphatic care. 


The 12th Annual Silent Auction is a fun and entertaining way to support the important mission of the Foundation for Venous & Lymphatic Disease, whether you donate or bid on an item. The Silent Auction will be held over the course of the AVLS’ Annual Congress (November 7-10, 2019 | Phoenix, AZ) culminating with a live auction at the New Horizon Reception on Friday evening.


In the past, donated items have included medical devices, services and training, vacation getaways, art, jewelry, sports memorabilia and more. In 2018 through our generous participants and cash donors, the FVLD was able to raise over $25,000 to go towards what's new and what's next in venous and lymphatic disease.



While a festive event, the Silent Auction provides resources for the Foundation for Venous & Lymphatic Disease's mission to advance the highest standard of care for patients with venous disease through investment in research and education. The funds raised are invested directly into projects which promote the specialty and its growth. By donating to the Silent Auction, you are helping improve patient care related to vein disease.


Your generosity does not go unnoticed, either. Your donation will be featured on the website seen by thousands of visitors and at the event.
