A Peek at the Silent Auction

We know many of our attendees look forward to the silent auction portion of the conference.  Our auctions could not be possible each year without the generosity and support of our donors.  You’re the best!

This year we have several great items up for auction, and these are just a few:

Two, roundtrip Southwest Airline tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S.  No blackout dates!  Take the trip you’ve been putting off or grab them now for holiday travel.  And remember, bags fly free on Southwest!

An autographed copy of Night, by Elie Wiesel, author and Nobel Peace Prize winner (1986). 

 Night is a work by Elie Wiesel based on his experience, as a young Orthodox Jew, of being sent with his family to the German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald during the Second World War and the Holocaust.

Night is the first book in a trilogy—Night, Dawn, and Day—reflecting Wiesel’s state of mind during and after the Holocaust. The titles mark his transition from darkness to light, according to the Jewish tradition of beginning a new day at nightfall. “In Night,” he said, “I wanted to show the end, the finality of the event. Everything came to an end—man, history, literature, religion, God. There was nothing left. And yet we begin again with night.”

Two, single-day tickets to Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa Bay.  Experience up-close encounters with amazing animals, take an unforgettable safari across the Serengeti Plains, test your courage on pulse-pounding roller coasters, take in a stage show, and colorful live entertainment.

All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit FLC and its members.  The auction will be open for bids beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 5.  The auction will close at 3:10 p.m. on Thursday, May 6.  Winning bids will be collected at the registration table beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 6.
