In Search Of – Donations for Holiday Silent Auction

Hey SHW Members

For our Holiday Dinner this year we will be having a silent auction, not a raffle as our major fundraiser. So do you have something you can donate to benefit the club?

A case of wine, some grape futures, a dinner served by you and your friends, a night or two in your mountain cabin, a trip somewhere, a dinner in your favorite restaurant, a stay at your timeshare in Hawaii, maybe even some winemaking equipment?

If so please write to me at judypinegar@gmail.com (note I am moving away from the @calwisp.com e-mail address I used to use).

In your e-mail, please describe the item (trip, etc) in glowing terms, and approximately what it is worth. If you have a picture sent that along too. I will transcribe the information onto beautiful certificates, which can be bid on by members and guests at the Holiday Party!

Judy Pinegar                                                                                                                                 SHW Webmaster, Competition Coordinator, and General Cheerleader
