AUCTION ITEM

Since our advocacy and support work for people who are blind and visually impaired is dependent upon private fundraising, (We do not apply for government grants.) our annual auction is one of our major events each year.  This auction will be held immediately following the banquet on Saturday evening.  If you would like to donate an item, we would be most appreciative. 

MORE ITEMS

It is always fun to win a door prize or find something in your convention registration bag.  If you would like to provide items for these purposes, we thank you and will recognize you for your donation.
