Extra, Extra...

read all about it!

As I ponder the decline of the print newspaper. (My parents still ask me every other week if we get the paper at home.)

Here is some news in my world.

Thank you to Sheri for this lovely award. I really appreciate the thought and will add it to my side bar.

Also Sock It To Me is baaaccckkkkk! Check out Kym's blog I'm A Smart One to participate. What a great way to connect with our fellow bloggers.

Click here to read my post from last time. My socks kick arse, quite literally.

And, Parenthood for Me is looking for sponsors and donors for our Family Building Dinner and Silent Auction April 10. We need to build our endowment. Our first grants are being awarded in June 2010.

We are offering a table sponsorship for $250. A sign goes on the table, there is a mention in the program and on our website.

We are also looking for items for the silent auction. We will pay for shipping within reason.
All donations are tax deductible.

Here are some examples:

  1. Sports teams jersey's, hockey sticks, tickets, etc. (signed if possible)
  2. Artwork
  3. Hand bags, boutique items
  4. Home decor items

The value of the item should be at least $100. but we have been pairing items that go well together such as 2 donations of jewelry.

Off to eat home made peanut butter swirl brownies prepared by my husband. First day out of bed in four days. Had a horrible cold and so glad the worst is over.

What kind of items are you looking for the the silent auction? Only big expensive items? Or would a themed gift basket work?
I can not afford the table, but I would like to provide some support.
