SpringThing Save the Date1 (002)       AUCTION

We are please to announce that our online auction catalog for the Spring Thing is live!


There are nearly 200 items listed!  (Please note: many of the items are duplicates because each open slot for a party, event, or dinner sign-up is listed as many times as there are openings.  For example, if the item is a dinner for 10 it will be listed 10 times.)

This year, we will only be using the online catalog to preview the auction items.  It’s a great way to help you plan out your bidding strategy.

If you have any questions or see any mistakes in the online catalog, please let me know.

Everyone Is Included

For those of you who can’t attend the Spring Thing, and would like to bid on some items, please let me know.  We’ll make sure no one is left out.
