Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Our annual Silent “no more!” Auction is but a mere 4 weeks away!! Just a reminder, please bring your auction items that need to be combined with other items, to our April meeting. No item is too small! A restaurant gift certificate could be added to a “Night on the Town” gift basket. Use your imagination! We will have fun making auction baskets at the April meeting. We are also in need of baskets.
We have some wonderful items so far. Two $100 dining gift certificates for Todd English’s Tuscany and Bob Flay’s Bar American at Mohegan Sun. (One of these will be used for the auction, the other for the golf tournament); a Summer Beach bag complete with Blanket, towel, flip/flops, frisbee, kid pops and water bottle (maybe someone would like to throw in a bottle of sunscreen and some sunglasses)? A lovely grey/gold shawl; an Asian style tea set with tray; two beautiful hand knitted afghans, among other wonderful items.
Please look around your house for like-new items, check in with friends and family, ask the businesses you frequent for donations. New this year: The Zonta Club of Quaboag Valley is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so donors may be able to take a tax deduction for cash or items donated to this event!
Of course, the Silent “no more!” Auction will only be a success if we have a great attendance. So invite, Invite, Invite!
Trish Pupek, Auction Chairman
