Safe Homes, Safe Streets Silent Auction - Make a Donation!
Our upcoming Safe Homes, Safe Streets 2012 event is quickly becoming one of our signature fundraising events. We are asking for donations of silent auction items to be used during the event on February 8th. The items can range from a basket of goodies, to sporting or event tickets, a weekend getaway, golf, or anything that you believe would peak someone's interest and open their wallets. We are hoping to keep the minimum value of the items above $100, but would love to talk to you if you have an idea that doesn't meet these requirements.
If you have any questions or would like to donate, please contact Kimber Welker at (816) 695-2585. Your gracious support is appreciated, and we are looking forward to an amazing event!
