SAVE THE DATE: Friday, Nov. 16th from 7 - 9:15pm in Naperville at Community Christian Church (click here for directions).
Come do your Christmas shopping and support a great cause at the same time! Plus, SAVE MONEY on hundreds of auction items in dozens of categories - since the typical auction item will sell for around 50% off of its normal price. We already have some fantastic auction items (see below), but we still need your help in one of three ways:
1.      VOLUNTEER - we need volunteers the night of the event - please email SANDY if you're available to volunteer in before the event or during set-up or the event itself;
2.      DONATE - do you or anyone you know own or manage a business that can donate an item;  tickets or gift certificates? Contact RICK if you do!
3.      INVITE & ATTEND - make it a family or small group event--or make an announcement at church or work. Getting a big turnout for the event is what we need the most help with! REMEMBER: the auction is fun; you save money on Christmas shopping AND it supports a great cause! (Public Welcome - No tickets required!)
A preview of some of the auction items will be coming soon - so please check back!

· Tickets (sports & theater)
· Kids' Toys for all ages (including Baby toys and supplies)
· Trips, Outings & Vacations (including Sedona, AZ & a Lake Michigan Cabin)
