FRIENDS 21st Annual Convention

Silent Auction replaced by 50/50 raffles

Live Auction Changes:money_bag

We’re excited to share the following exciting news about our auctions this year:

50/50 raffle – This year we will are replacing the silent auction with 50/50 raffles.  Yes, raffles. There will be more than one raffle and more than one winner.  Kids and Tweens will be selling raffle tickets, Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning.  The winners will be announced at lunch on Saturday.  Watch for more information to come!

Live auction – This year we’re specifically requesting gift cards to be donated.  We will be packaging gift cards in fun ways. The more cards we receive, the more fun we’ll have!  If you choose to bring a specialty item or themed basket, we ask that the retail value be more than $50.   IMPORTANT:  please let us know before June 15, what item(s), including gift cards you will be bringing to the convention.

If you are unable to attend the convention, but would still like to donate to the auction, you can visit, click on the “OTHER” button and we will purchase gift cards to be added to the live auction.

Just to get you a little excited, we already have a baseball signed by a Chicago Cubs player, and  a handmade, glass Blackhawks logo (retail value $500)

If you have any questions, would like to help, or have suggestions, please contact: or
