Sheri Katzman (Daniel 2016) has graciously agreed to head up the Silent Auction portion of the AAB and is in search of silent auction donation items. Each club is asked to donate 4-8 items in order to raise funds to keep ticket prices low. Can you make an auction donation? Perhaps a wine gift basket, a West Point memento, a week at your condo? Please contact Sheri for more information or your willingness to donate,
