THEMED BASKETS  Instead of purses, we are asking each chapter to donate a themed Basket. This too will be a silent auction. Theme ideas may be: movie, swimming, county or city knick knacks, Disney, princess, vegetables…and on and on. Please price your basket and bring it with you. That will be the beginning bid. This auction will be set on $2.00 increments with an on-the-spot winning price if someone would like to buy it NOW.
