The theme of the Garden Party this year is Fiesta!

Most of the money we raise comes from our auction, and we need your help to make this important election year fundraiser a success.

Auction Items Are Needed: Gift certificates are always popular, especially those from restaurants. Most restaurants are happy to donate to our auction. It's good public relations for them, and most Democrats are happy to contribute to the cause. Perhaps there's a shop that you frequent and they know you. You could ask for a donation of an item in the shop, or perhaps a gift certificate. A gift of your time is always welcome, especially if it's time in the kitchen. Dinners at your home or theirs are popular. And everyone loves sweets. Consider donating a certificate for your specialty for the buyer to enjoy at a more convenient time. If you have an art item that you are tired of or just doesn't fit your style anymore, consider donating it.

But do remember, this is not a garage sale. Items need to be in excellent condition. These are just a few ideas. You're creative people. We trust that you can come up with some pretty good ideas on your own.

And So Are Volunteers: Volunteers are needed before the auction to help with the planning and to solicit auction items, and lots of volunteers are needed for the day of the Garden Party. People are needed to check people in and to check people out; people to set up the silent auction; people to decorate the tables; people for all sorts of different tasks.
