Mary Markquart Special Events

Donate to an event auction item!

During each Club event we showcase local businesses through our Silent & Live auctions. The auctions are a wonderful way to raise funds to put right into the investment of our area youth!

We understand that material things sometimes are difficult to come up with when generating a basket for an event. We want to do it for you!

We will purchase items and put together a basket in the honor of you!
