- Silent Auction Donations needed for Awards Dinner!
Donations are needed for the silent auction being held in conjunction with the awards dinner in March. This is an annual event that is a big fundraiser for the chapter and an absolute blast for members.
Last year members donated some amazing items for the silent auction. There was clothing, a beautiful Dressage Extensions dressage print, gift certificates to local businesses and feed stores, gift certificates for lessons and equine massage, artwork, incredible wine glasses, vacation package and so much more. Everyone had a fantastic time bidding for items! If you’ve never participated in a silent auction… here’s your chance!
Please consider bringing an item to donate! If you have any questions or have an item you would like to donate, please contact Susan Ward at 853-4175 or by email at email@example.com
