Our goal this year is to offer something for everyone. We’d love to offer great “experiences” as well as goods and services, so we’re asking you to get creative. If you have a great idea or talent and are not sure how it translates into an auction-able service or event, please contact Janet Englund or Deedie Kriebel and we’ll help you transform your ideas and enthusiasm.
Events and experiences may be simple or elaborate, for a large or small group, hosted by you or a group of your friends, at your home, a special venue, or even at the Fellowship.
The Auction is an important fundraiser, so please be generous and offer as many experiences, goods and services as you can!
