I just wanted to remind you that the YMEN 2011 Benefit Auction is only ONE WEEK AWAY! If you haven’t already purchased your ticket or table, or if you want to sponsor Lawndale parent or student to attend, please let me know as soon as possible! We only have a few tables left, and want to make sure that everyone who wants to come is able to do so. Tickets are $50, and this includes a wonderful night or entertainment, a delicious meal, a live and silent Auction , and a night with YMEN! You can also purchase or sponsor a table of 10 for $500. Every little bit helps, so even if you aren’t able to attend to sponsor a ticket or even just make a general donation means so much to YMEN and myself.
