Annual Scholarship Auction
Plans are well under way for this year’s silent auction at the 45th Annual PSRFA Conference. Keeping with the theme of Nurturing Children by Strengthening Families we are looking to past auctions to make this one even better than ever for the futures of the children and families we serve.
We recall the many auctions with not only baskets but also the items that were the handcrafts and the treasures from each area of our state. We are looking to showcase these types of articles at this year’s event. We know many people with amazing talents attend our conference. This is your opportunity to show those talents off and help a great cause. In the past there were quilts, paintings, woodworking handcrafts, and flower arrangements to name a few. We remember gift certificates to various venues and attractions. The sky is the limit! We are asking for donations from everyone to assist with the auction. With your help we will be on our way to Nurturing Children by Strengthening Families!
All donations and items can be brought to the conference with you. We are excited to see many familiar people and looking forward to many new faces at the conference!
As in the past, all proceeds will go toward the PSRFA Scholarship Fund. Please help us make this fund grow with your assistance and donations.
