I was flattered when Mal asked me if I would help format the program for On the Vine: Celebrating Books and Wine, A to Z’s first fundraiser. I love formatting papers (nerdy, I know!). After dozens of emails, I was finally able to produce the final product. I had never made a silent auction program before, but somehow everything came together! After working on the program, I thought it would be a great visual for guests to see numbers on the items they were bidding on. Another love of mine is scrapbooking, so I offered to make the signs for the tables and the numbers for each item at the auction. I’m so fortunate to be involved with an organization that benefits the literacy of children in Africa. I believe strongly in literacy and was honored to lend a hand.
