Auction, Feb 23, 2019, has “Stuff”—needs “Wow!” How about some theater ticket donations, or restaurant coupons, time share days, cars
(no kidding), tractors, exotic plants,
airline mileage, services you can provide (mechanical, lawn care, cleaning),
wheelbarrows, diamond tiaras you haven’t worn for a while—you get
the idea! Fun/Wow/Creative
