From the Auction Block

Our brainstorming needs some more wind! Decisions are being made now about  themes and Special Appeal ideas for our auction which will be on November 20, 2010.

Please send any and all suggestions about what theme you’d like to see for the auction in the fall to with AUCTION THEME in the subject line. (Send them soon or you may end up with Scott Kerman’s “Stairway to Heaven Prom” idea!)

Ideas about next year’s Special Appeal? We’re trying to decide that one soon – send us your thoughts at with SPECIAL APPEAL IDEA in the subject line.

Procurement cannot start too early! If you are headed out for spring break, ask the hotel, motel, trailer park, airline, rental car agency or moped dealer to toss in an extra week’s rental for you (just be mindful of the expiration date…) Did your officemate win two iPods, iPhones, or iPads? Ask them to donate one! Did you have a special dinner at a special restaurant with that special someone? See if the restaurant will donate a meal – or two – to TIS.

Remember, it’s ALL tax deductible!

Keep an eye on your inbox for an email from to tell you about big changes for the fall auction. GET INVOLVED!

Thanks, Auction Committee
