Annual Online Auction. Monday November 25 to Thursday December 12

Our annual online auction begins Monday November 25th and ends Thursday December 12th. We need DONATIONS! Here is an example of what we are looking for: Restaurant gift certificates, gift certificates to local businesses, gift baskets, new jewelry, wine, beer and cider, tickets to events, and passes to museums and amusement places.

Visit the auction preview page here.

The deadline for donations is November 18th. We are asking that every family donates an item or two. Please be aware that donations will on average bring in between a third to half of their full retail value, so if we are to equal the $20,000 we made last year we will need at least $60,000 worth of donations

This is one of our biggest fundraising events and it takes many hands to make it happen…. We have volunteer opportunities for those of you who prefer to work from home as well as many short 2 hour slots. Please go to Sign Up Genius to sign up.
