Our biggest gala need is for auction donations. We are currently only about 1/3 of the way to our goal. Specifically, we would like larger items like services, event tickets and use of vacation homes.

Donation forms are in the mailbox at 172 ACC and if we have a donor's contact info we will fill out the form for them.

We are also still in need of wine donations for the wine pull. We have about half of the number of bottles we need.

Please help us make this a successful event! There will not be a better party for such a great cause. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity!!

Contact Sterling Lanken with any questions.
