Sealed With A Kiss For A Good Cause!

Ok fellow bloggers...Now I know we are in a bad place in our economy (dare I say recession?!?)...however, my pals and I (mental and tsannie) are tri-chairing a fundraiser for our local community hospital's non-profit foundation, (The Norwalk Hospital Foundation).  We have been able to secure some really cool auction items so I thought I would share them with you....If you are attending the event you will get a chance to bid on them live...however, if you cannot make this soiree you still have a chance to participate via sealed bid.  Just e-mail or call in the $ amount you would max out at and if we do not exceed this at the event the sealed bid would be opened and revealed to see if it surpassed the last bid...if so, you win!!  Of course, you would be responsible to cough up the dough:)  This is for a charitable cause people so your donation is tax deductable.  
Thanks for allowing me to stand on the blog box!

I'm glad you're back, I hope that everything is ok.
Thanks for your comment, LONG story, but final word is, my leg issues ended up being diagnosed as a rare immune disorder thing, often mis-diagnosed for a brown recluse spider bite. Things were healing well, but that has slowed significantly now putting me back to not quite out of the woods yet, but maybe by Christmas all will be well. Thanks for your thoughts :)
Again, good to have you back!!
