Silent Auction Items Needed

Another opportunity to support the LPCANC Scholarship Fund is to donate something for our Silent Auction; the item can be anything from books to services, such as gift baskets, books you’ve authored or have enjoyed, pottery you have made or purchased, time shares, a service you provide—anything that you think others may find useful, interesting or of value. What would really be appreciated is a week at a time-share or vacation home that would be a tax deduction for you. 

The Silent Auction is being managed by Region 3!  Please contact Region3@lpcanc.org to make arrangements for delivery of the item.
