Our Sweetheart Auction will be held on February 8, 2019 at the Italian Heritage Center, 40 Westland Avenue, Portland before and during our regular meeting. If you have an item(s) you would like to donate for this event, please contact Loretta Rowe (lrowe@maine.rr.com) 883-5432 ASAP. If you received an item as a gift that doesn’t quite suit you, donate it to this good cause. The items must be new or SLIGHTLY used. Please be sure to contact us BEFORE the day of the auction with a description and value of your items....there is multiple paperwork that must be completed to put items on the auction block and it takes time to complete it all.

Some suggestions for donations:

Themed Gift Baskets - Put a basket together with items for the theme:
    • Theater Nite (Tickets with various boxed candies)
    • Golf Anyone? (Golf glove, balls, towel, tees, cart fee, etc.)
    • Gardener’s Delite (Gardening gloves, seed packets, knee pads, etc.)
    • Personal Relaxation (Bubble bath, bath loofa, wine glass & wine, etc.)

Tickets to a sporting event
Jewelry

- you dine out, ask to speak with the manager and request a Gift Card to support Rotary
Coffee Brewer

One of the best items we've had in previous auctions was a certificate for home-baked desserts once a month for a year. 

So put your thinking caps on and help us out. 

Don’t forget, get your item descriptions to Loretta ASAP.
You can bring the item(s) to the Rotary meeting/auction of Feb. 8th, but let us know ahead of time if you plan to.

Thank you.
