Fill out a slip at the table with your minimum price you will accept for the item. Members can then write in their bids during the course of the auction.
The cost to you as a seller is only $3.00 PER ITEM. The charge is payable in advance and applies whether item sells or not.
At the same table or at the registration table in the hall you can buy a ticket for the 50-50 raffle. YOU get 50% of the total pot and Chapter 8 benefits from the other half. $1.00 per ticket or three for $2.00.
If you any of you have a question or wish to contact someone in the chapter, get in touch with any of these people and they will get your message to the right person if they cannot help you.
