NEW DATE: MARCH 12, 2022 at 5pm

Due to increasing COVID cases in our area, we have decided to postpone this year’s Sweetheart Auction until March 12th.  Please continue to check our website for further updates. We look forward to seeing you in March! 


Our Safe Event Policy


We are planning to be back live and in person for the 17th Annual Sweetheart Auction at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center on March 12, 2022. Keeping everyone in our community safe and healthy remains a top priority at CFFNM so we have created a Safe Event Policy, based on the latest news and guidelines from health experts. In accordance with the State of New Mexico mask mandate, face masks will be required while inside the Convention Center except when in the process of eating and drinking. A valid photo ID and proof of full COVID vaccination and booster, or negative 3rd party verified COVID test with name and date done within 24 hours of the event, will be required for each attendee and verified by security prior to entering the Convention Center. In addition to attendees, we will be requiring this proof from all staff, vendors and volunteers.
