Ranging from trips to delicate handcrafts, there is something of interest for everyone. See a partial list of great items for the 2018 auction donated by generous sponsors.

Research shows that volunteering as little as 96 hours a year leads to improved mental, emotional and physical health for seniors. Volunteers consistently report decreased loneliness and social isolation as well as reduced stress and higher life satisfaction. With more than 10,000 Americans turning age 65 each day, the number of potential volunteers is expected to double.
