Although we have a few nice items ready for bidding, we need your donations to make this one of our most successful years. Need ideas? Perhaps you or someone you know likes to knit, crochet, cross stitch, throw pots or do bead work? Perhaps there are items unique to your city and/or state? Jewelry, scarves, books, cards, and food (chocolate!!!) are always popular items, as well as other small and/or light weight items easily transported by airplane.

Once you’ve collected your items for donation, send a separate email message for each to Gail.  Include the following in your message:

  • Picture of item
  • Brief description
  • Value of item
  • Opening big

If you prefer that your item be designated as “Online Only” bidding (especially if you are unable to attend the meeting in Chicago, but still want to participate), let me know that too. The bidding for online only items will close on July 8, 2016. As soon as we receive payment for your item, I’ll contact you and the recipient so you can coordinate shipment/delivery of your donation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
