Family Reunion Idea

I’ve completely forgotten.

I’ve been meaning to tell you.

A couple months ago I took photos for a 85’th birthday/family reunion, and they did the coolest thing!

Family members donated items for a silent auction.

Most items were made by the donators

Can you believe these photo boxes???

Some were not.

To die for! Who wouldn’t want these!?

Seriously. This was such a great idea!!!

The best part!?

The proceeds went to fund the NEXT family reunion!

I just thought this was way too brilliant to keep to myself.

Of course it helps that the birthday girl was mother to 15 children. So a family reunion brings in a captive audience in the hundreds.

Still. It could work for yours. Or mine.

Happy reuniting!
