Auction & Gala: Wish List
Want to support the POP Mardi Gras Gala & Auction, but not sure what type of items to donate? This list includes a few examples to spark ideas, but we appreciate all donations!
The Gala committee has been working hard to secure donations since the summer. Before you reach out to a local restaurant or business, please run your idea by Kelly Noonan, POP Director of Advancement and Engagement, to ensure a donation is not already in the works.
In order to be recognized in the event program, donations must be received by Thursday, April 15 and a donation form must accompany the item.
