Annual Fundraiser Auction with Howard Johannes.|
An evening of delicious food, an entertaining live auction, raffle items, great laughs and more as we support our club with this one and only fundraiser.
A significant portion of our Group budget comes from this annual fundraiser. This is very necessary for our programs, so we hope you will join us and spend some money.
This is actually a very fun program. Items for sale include goods donated by merchants, goods made or donated by members, and services offered by members. Perhaps you can also donate some of your time towards this effort.
There is a potluck dinner at this event. Please bring a dish to pass and your own table settings. We also request a $3 donation for admission and the meal. There will be an entertaining auction, a raffle, and maybe a fun trivia game.
Please attend this activity. All visitors, guests, and members are welcome!
Doors open at 6:00. Pot-luck begins at 6:30. The auction begins at 7:00.
We start this meeting earlier so that we can have a pot luck meal and start the auction at 7:00.
