This event opens at noon for a preview of the purses and silent auction items. Light refreshments are served beginning at 12:30. Live auctioning with our most entertaining Dana Stout begins at 1:00 pm. All proceeds benefit the Nancy Champlin P.E.O. Foundation Scholarship for Grant County high school senior women who plan to continue their education at an accredited college or university.  

Over 100 purses are auctioned, each one filled with surprises – but no peeking allowed. Silent auction items include Charles Russell prints, Syzygy tile, items from Cooperativa, gift baskets, and a host of gift certificates from favorite local businesses and dining emporia. Tickets are $10 and may be available at the door, but buying tickets in advance is recommended. Contact Pam Weber to buy tickets 575-313-7183.
