We will be numbering and adding a checked ribbon to each donation to prep the items for the Silent Auction. Bidding will happen only on Thursday evening and Friday morning. All auction items will be “sold” to the highest bidder and collected on Friday afternoon. You must be present on Friday to participate! If there are leftover items, they can be sold at the minimum suggested price or returned to the donor. Now, what would Laura bring to a Silent Auction? An apple pie? A lace-trimmed hanky? Hope you can join in the fun! Email Connie Ryle Neumann, LauraPalooza 2015 Silent Auction Chairperson, with questions about the auction or about your donations.
