The AAP Foundation is gearing up for our annual Silent Auction, to be held in conjunction with the 2024 AAP Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA. The Silent Auction has been a centerpiece of the AAP Foundation booth at the Annual Meeting for more than 17 years, and continues to raise vital funds to support periodontal education and research. Popular items include products from exhibitors, stays at vacation properties, wine & spirits, tickets to sporting events, jewelry, and other luxury items. Your donation's fair market value is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

Donating to the Silent Auction is easy! Just complete our quick online form. We will include your item in the auction at our booth and on the online platform.
