Holiday Gift Silent Auction an Elegant Evening of Friends and Fundraising

SAN FRANCISCO, C.A., December 6, 2008 -- SLVP's annual silent auction was a quieter affair this year.  The guest list was smaller and the evening was more intimate, allowing us to share more of Sierra Leone’s story with first time attendees.  This year the auction items centered on the theme of gifts for the holiday season.  We had something for everyone, hand made jewelry, wine, gift certificates and we added a raffle prize.  Thanks to the generosity of our attendees the evening was successful in spite of the dampened economic climate.  Again with a zero overhead event, we raised $1,440, all of which will go directly to finish the Mamaka school and start construction on our next project, the Fadugu Primary School.
