Ok, I have to post this because I am so happy about it. Being the room mother/parent for my child's first grade class this year I was "in charge" of putting together out basket for the Annual Spring Auction. Our theme was Car Care, Travel & Safety. I had moments of concern that the other parents in the class wouldn't come through and donate an item (or two) or cash but in the end they did and how!
We ended up with a fabulous basket that was worth at least $455.00 and ended up selling for over $400.00. That's a lot - other class baskets were selling for much, much less (though they were worth less also).
So, Woo Hoo!
