We will be holding a "Ticket Auction" to help cover the costs of the Ball Weekend.
What's a Ticket Auction? In this type of auction you purchase tickets and place the tickets in the bidding box in front of the items you wish to win. You can increase your chances by placing more tickets for a specific item, or spread them across multiple items. The winning bid for each item will be drawn during the interval at Saturday's Ball.
We need new, quality items or services for the auction. Hand-made items and/or items with a Scottish connection are particularly appropriate. Contact Eric Salo (salo [at] cs.stanford.edu) or Helen Grant (hlg17 [at] comcast.net) to make a donation.
Hospitality is available for out of town guests in the homes of local dancers. Indicate your needs on the registration form or contact the hospitality coordinator, Lynn Paulin for information: Lynn1713 [at] comcast.net.
