$25.00 PER PERSON INCLUDES STEAK DINNER, DOOR PRIZES, AUTHENTIC SILENT AUCTION ITEMS
Below are just a few of the silent auction items that we have for you. Come out for an informative evening and help a child today by bidding on these items!
Beautiful hand carved soap stone chess set. Authentic direct from Ethiopia as it traveled back with Megan this past fall. This item would have taken many hours to master.
Banana Plant Art
These pieces of art are produced from the many parts of the banana plant including the bark, the leaves and the flowers. The materials are dried, ironed and baked to give many different colors and textures. These are then cut into small pieces using a pattern and glued to make intricate designs and images. We have a few of these items for our silent auction, again brought back with Megan from Ethiopia. (The frames were purchased locally in Grande Prairie.)
We have many other items for silent auction including a hand woven embroidered cotton table cloth with matching napkins, the authentic coffee ceremony pots in different sizes, a hand woven cotton rug, plus many more. If you wish to bid on these items and cannot be at the fundraiser in person, please send us your maximum bid on the form on the donations page and we will place the bid on the item. You must get a response from us to ensure that your bid has been accepted. Closing date for receipt of such bids will be Friday, April 8th at noon.
