Please help SCNPS by donating items for the SILENT AUCTION as part of the upcoming 2014 conference on the campus of The Historic Penn Conference Center Beaufort County (Dates: October 31-November 2, 2014).
We are requesting that members consider donating and bringing items that can be sold in the silent auction at the conference in order to raise money towards conference expenses and to support activities of the Society; as well as for the fun of it! If anyone has an item or can acquire a donated item, please contact me (Sudie) with the item details prior to the conference and plan to bring the item to the Penn Center for the auction (auction will be Saturday evening, but items can be on display starting Friday evening). Please only bring items (or groups/baskets of items) with a value of over $25. Item ideas include plants (as always!), artwork, books, gardening tools or materials, birding/hiking/outdoor adventure equipment or gadgets, gourmet/local/homemade food or drink (jams, relishes, honey, coffee, etc.), donated vacations/guided tours, hikes, paddle trips, etc., botany tools (plant press, hand lens?). Items with values less than $25 can be grouped together for a higher value.
All I need ahead of time is the item name and/or short description, person donating, monetary value estimate, and then later for the item (s) to be brought to the conference. Thanks!!!
