Silent Auction opens for online bidding Monday, June 23

Our annual Silent Auction will open for bidding on Monday, June 23rd. That's less than one week from today!! Paula has been working tirelessly to create the auction blog and add the donations we've received thus far. A big thank you to the members who have already donated items. I'll be accepting items for donation throughout the online auction period (June 23 to July 8), as well as those delivered in person to the SCCLL Breakfast and Business Meeting in San Antonio.

For a "sneak peek" at what we have so far, take a look at the auction web site: http://sccll14auction.wordpress.com/

Although we're still doing some tweaking of the format, it will be ready for bidding by Monday!! If you have any questions about the auction, contact Gail Warren.
