A Call for Auction Items

North Capitol Main Street (NCMS) is proud to present our 2010 Winter Blues Party and Silent Auction on February 27, 2010, benefiting programs to revitalize and support commercial businesses located within the service area. NCMS needs your donations to help make the Winter Blues Silent Auction and Fundraiser a success! Donating auction items is a great way to support the programs and activities, like the Clean and Safe Sentinels, and encourage commercial revitalization for neighborhood serving businesses. For business-owners-this could be a great opportunity to promote your business! For everyone, it's tax deductible!*

PLUS, item donors will have their names entered into a special drawing for a FREE prize to be given away one week following the Winter Blues Fundraiser.

Hot items include travel and vacation packages, certificates to local restaurants, sporting and event tickets and other attractions and opportunities; original artwork, jewelry, and certificates for goods and services--fitness classes, spa treatments, etc. Themed gift baskets (stuff for guys, wine drinkers, gourmet food lovers or lovers of specific cuisine, or relaxation goodies) can be good sellers, too!
