I’ve had the privilege of coordinating the Silent Auction for the ACFW conference for the past several years. All proceeds from 2012 go to the scholarship fund for the conference in 2013.
The wooden pieces above and below were handcrafted by Gary Harders of South Dakota.
Gift Certificates were offered for Kim Sawyer’s B&B, other vacation spots, critiques, E-book formatting, book trailer, private coaching, and much, much more.
Specially designed and hand crafted items poured into the bookstore. (I realized too late that the picture of the lovely hand crafted jewelry did not turn out.)
Over 50 items were offered by our generous ACFW members.
Big baskets, little baskets.
I still can’t get over this one. Janna Franklin, the lady in the middle created this lovely lifelike baby. Kim Sawyer out bid all of us with her first bid. I just mentioned that if I felt I could justify it to Husband (after bidding on several other items) I would out bid her.
After the banquet Kim came and paid for her purchase and placed “Emma Grace” in my arms. I call that SHARING THE LOVE.
