Exclusive to this year's dinner auction, The Mad Hatter's Ball, are our centerpiece tea cups painted by local artists.  Below are images of the final pieces to be auctioned off at the ICS Dinner Auction this Saturday, February 7, 2015.

There are 30 centerpieces total.  20 are giant tea cups, 10" in diameter, and 10 are stacked sets of smaller tea cups and a tea pot.  Shown here are 27 of them.

Due to demand, we are offering absentee bidding on these items.  Here's how that will work . . .
-If you see an item you'd like to bid on, send me an email at josasser@yahoo.com (You can also text me this information at 618.444.6525) and tell me:
1. the name/artist of the item
2. your maximum bid for this item
3. your contact information (phone number, email)
-All absentee bids will be collected, and the highest bid of those will be the starting bid on the live silent auction on February 7.
-You will be contacted that night, ONLY if you've won, to arrange pick-up and payment.  Items will not be shipped.

Thanks and happy bidding!
