A:  In order to be included in our 2016 Auction Catalog, the procurement forms must be received by Friday, January 29, 2016. Any items received after this date will be included in the auction, but item and donor information will not appear in any pre-printed materials.

Q: I am donating some low-dollar amount items to a class auction basket. Do I really need to fill out a procurement form?
A:  We want to make sure we recognize all of our generous donors, but if you would rather not fill out a form, you can absolutely just send in your item(s). Be sure to let us know somehow what classroom or basket they belong in.
