Sling Library Silent Auction

by Tami Grosset

A month or so ago I asked our members if they had a talent or skill they would like to share with the group. We were looking for donations of items to include in a silent auction to be placed online in a public forum. We were quickly overwhelmed by the wonderful and diverse items donated by members and their families.

Today the auction went live. It can be found on Facebook where you will see the 30 plus lots of varying price points, something for everyone with all different sized budgets.

Here is a sample of some of the items;
