Our annual silent auction—Mesquite Madness—is usually held in January. It is a popular social event as well as our largest fundraiser. We meet in a large room to see what we can buy. Folks offer dinners, luncheons, museum tours, and interesting outings. Sometimes a hike with lunch thrown in draws lots of bids. Services can be bid on, such as pet-sitting, chauffeuring, or photograph enhancements. Everyone bids on these events and services in a silent auction. It’s a fun opportunity to meet new people and strengthen our community.
