Junior League- Ride Into Spring

I believe I've mentioned it before, but I am a member of my local Junior League. For those of you who don't know what this is:

The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. (AJLI) is a non-profit organization of 292 Junior Leagues in Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom and the United States. Junior Leagues are educational and charitable women's organizations aimed at improving their communities through volunteerism and building their members' civic leadership skills through training. According to its mission, "The Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. (AJLI) is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable."

My 'chapter' has it's annual fundraiser on Friday. The function is a silent and live auction, with live auction items of:

 I am particularly excited because my mom and Nana are coming up from Atlanta for the event. I am also very excited because I received donations from the following wonderful and generous organizations/people:

I will take lots of pictures of the event and items as a follow up... but I can not be more grateful to these people for their help. The funds raised go to support our league and it's efforts within the community to promote literacy and healthy development to children in need.
