Farthest Corners Silent Auction Items Needed
Our fundraising challenge is great for the next few years as Austin & Sinte establish a school and mission center in Burma where they will teach and create opportunities to share the gospel. Prior to the dinner on April 28 (we hope you can make it!) we are focusing on soliciting items to strengthen the offerings we have each year. We are looking for NEW items for the following categories:
Antique Alley (furniture, art)
Art (original art, framed art in good condition)
A Touch of Asia (items purchased in Asian countries)
Food & Spirits (gift cards, winery tours, specialty foods)
His & Hers (jewelry, spa items, tools)
Home & Garden (items for your home, electronics)
Kids (books, toys, games)
Sports (memorabilia, tickets, gift certificates)
We are particularly looking for items for our “Leisure” section, i.e., vacation home/time share donations, hotel gift certificates, theatre tickets, airlines tickets. Please contact the church office if you have a donation to make at email@example.com, or contact Becky Whitelock at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
