Spring 2023 Auction

Next month,  follow the yellow brick road...

Yellow Brick Road

... and join us for bidding, food, and fun at our annual auction fundraiser! The event will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2023. The Silent Auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. and entertainment at 7 p.m.


We'll have something for everyone - dinners, hikes, event tickets, lessons, services - and so much more!

Enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and libations while being entertained by our own amazing members and friends in our very first Starr King Talent Show!


We want to offer great “experiences” as well as treasures, so it’s time to get creative.

 If you have a great idea or talent and are not sure how it translates into an auction-able service or event, please contact Deedie Kriebel or Janet Englund  and we'll help you transform your ideas and enthusiasm.


This is our big fundraiser, so please be generous and offer as many experiences, goods & services as you can think of!

Please submit your donation by April 2! Thank you!

There's no place like home
