Let’s Go Shopping!

What girl’s weekend is complete without a little shopping?

We would like to ask for your assistance in creating items for auction. If you are interested in participating in our silent auction, you may choose to gather small items and create a beautiful basket or ask a local business to donate gift certificates for products or services. If you have a special, creative talent, we also accept handcrafted items. Past auctions have included items like spa packages, sport- ing event tickets, adventure packages at Snowshoe Resort and handmade jewelry.

In addition to the silent auction, we will also be holding our annual Live Purse and Back Pack Auction on Friday evening. We invite you to donate a purse or a backpack filled with goodies to be auctioned. The purse or backpack can be new, gently used or handmade. Fill the bag and surprise the purchaser with hidden items like gift cards, bath and spa items, candles, chocolates, jewelry…be creative!

The silent auction will only be available Friday, April 11, during the reception. Items will be paid and picked up after the reception.

Fill out the form attached and return it to the council headquarters by March 28, 2104, so that we can make plans to display your auction item(s) in an appropriate and attractive manner. All auction items are welcome; contributions of any size are welcome and appreciated.

Proceeds from the auction will be used to support programming and learning opportunities for nearly 15,000 girls and adult volunteers in West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.
