We were approved to hold a Silent Auction at the football games on Fridays, September 22, October 13, and October 20th. One of the things we are auctioning off are gift baskets. We will be asking each section to donate items for a specific basket and will need one parent from each section to head up or organize putting the basket together. We will send out more info on that by the end of next week.
