Tongass Girl Scouts plan auction, fund-raiser
JUNEAU - The Tongass Alaska Girl Scout Council will hold its 13th annual auction as the concluding event of its 2004 annual meeting and training conference, Train and Sustain, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, in the Treadwell Room of the Baranof Hotel.
The fund-raiser includes silent, outcry and "dollar" auctions throughout the evening. An auction preview begins at 6 p.m., and there will be an appetizer buffet with cold and hot appetizers.
A no-host bar means that those who attend must be at least 21. Tickets are $20 for the event or $15 for Girl Scout leaders. Admission includes the buffet, as well as chances at a slew of door prizes.
Auction items include art, jewelry, whale-watching cruises, fishing charters, a T-shirt signed by basketball star Carlos Boozer, an American Girl doll, helicopter tours and more. Sen. Kim Elton, D-Juneau, will serve as auctioneer.
A raffle will also be held, and first prize is two round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines.
For tickets, call the new TAGSC Service Center at 586-1710 or buy at the door.
