Swelter at the Shelter Event & Silent Auction

The NoVAGO Swelter at the Shelter Summer Event is fast approaching, 20 July 08 is right around the corner and will be here before you know it. The event promises to be a “doozie” as all NoVAGO events are; plenty of caches to hunt, great food, super people, a raffle, and back by popular demand…our NoVAGO Annual Silent Auction.

Please indicate your attendance and whatever potluck food item you may be bringing on the event page

The Silent Auction catalog (it will be updated as additional item donations are received) can be found in the NoVAGO forums in this thread.

The Silent Auction is the only method NoVAGO uses to generate funds to operate for the coming year. Check it out, there are already some great items on auction, and more will be added.
