The week has arrived.  This Saturday is the silent auction my wife has organized to help honor our friend and raise money to fight cancer. I wrote about the story behind the auction here.

The event will be held Saturday, April 14th from 5PM to 7PM at the Lawrence Masonic Center. The cost for the dinner is $5 and all the money raised will go to the American Cancer Society.

I know weekend time is precious, but I am hoping you can take an hour out of you day, and join me in browsing what local businesses have donated. It would be appreciated.

There is going to be four times as many items as is listed below, but I spent some time adding some of the items that Lawrence area businesses have been generous enough to donate.
