HERBAL BENEFIT AUCTION
An auction for all ages, this one accepts US currency, checks, or credit cards. All proceeds raised will be donated to Herbal Education, Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, for use in bringing herbal education to the community. Donations of new or gently used items are welcome. Please drop off all donations to the table in the Welcome Tent by noon on Saturday so they may be curated and organized by Dave. Don't forget to pick up a receipt - the retail value of your donated items is tax deductible!
