About Our Auction
The past year and its shutdowns and other unforeseen problems have made it difficult for clubs such as ours to raise funds in the traditional manner. YOUR help in supporting our auction will allow us to continue the level of funding programs, projects, scholarships, and other worthwhile organizations in our area.
In 2019, a good friend of two of our members passed away. They were the grateful recipients of many of her beloved Longaberger baskets. As a way to memorialize her, we will also be contributing funds from this auction to the American Cancer Society in memory of Kathleen Rees.
