Items to be auctioned at the live auction include one beautiful handmade quilt, a hand-crafted cedar chest and tickets for a Kenny Chesney.
In addition to the live auction, you will have the opportunity to bid on numerous items at our silent auction. There will be items for the kiddos as well as adults. This is an opportunity for you to bid on some beautiful handmade and one-of-a-kind items, as well as numerous other items generously donated.
At this time we are collecting donations of gift cards/certificates from a variety of local restaurants. This collection will be raffled off at the dance. Just think of all the free food you can enjoy over the next year!
