Happy new year!!! Happy fundraising

I am obsessed with soliciting donations to the fun fair silent auction. See the local businesses that are donating items here. The thing is that I am not even on the committee. Oh well, I have been getting such a great response. Now I can’t stop. I’ve been contacting local Etsy crafters and artists. They have been awesome!

Each of these guys have agreed to donate something. Go to the links. Let’s make them see it’s worth it. Who wouldn’t want some of this stuff???
