"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Dinner and Silent Auction Fundraiser

What:  Adoption Dinner and Silent Auction Fundraiser

When: October 13, 2012  6-8 PM

Where: 2510 W Loughlin Drive, Chandler AZ 85224  
(Treva Lint's house located at Elliot Road and the 101)

Why: As most of you know, the cost of adoption is great.  As we move up the waiting list, we move closer to needing the funds to complete our adoption.  We also need to fund two trips to Ethiopia once we get our referral.

We invite you and your family to enjoy a dinner with us!  We will be accepting donations that evening or if you are unable to attend but feel lead to help us, you can donate through pay pal on this blog. 

Dinner will be served from 6-7 PM.  The auction will be open from 6-7:30 PM. 

We will be updating the blog with items that will be in the auction as we get them.  If you see something you want to bid on but know that you will not be able to attend the auction, please email us at abfrazey@gmail.com about it with your maximum bid and we will bid on it for you that evening.  If you do win the item, you will just need to pay shipping if we need to ship it to you or if you live in state we can meet at a later date to get the item to you.

We have a lot of great items as well as services that will be available at the auction.  Check back to see the updated list or subscribe to the blog by entering your email on the left side bar and you'll be notified when there is an update.

To help us prepare, please RVSP at abfrazey@gmail.com if you know you will be attending.

**If you would like your donation to be tax-deductible, please let us know.

  1. Hello there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about silent auction fundraising in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about silent auction fundraising. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
    Often called donor cultivation, relationship building is the foundation on which most fundraising takes place. Most development strategies divide donors into categories based on annual gifts. For instance, major donors are those that give at the highest level of the organization's fundraising scale and mid-level donors are in the middle.
    Many attendees are put off by being forced to "fight the crowd" which suppresses bidding.
