Shopping can always be fun, but it is especially satisfying when you know your purchase is helping others.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Soroptimist International and the Friday Harbor Soroptimist club’s 25th anniversary, a “Celebration Auction” is happening Nov. 14-20 online.

The line-up of items is fantastic. You’ll find local business gift certificates and items that will make terrific gifts, but no one will blame you if you keep them yourself. There is also an amazing assortment of food items you can collect during the holidays or next year. You’ll find a list of donors on our website at www.sifri.org and you can get all the details for each auction item on the Auctria website beginning Nov. 12.

We think you’ll enjoy this way to shop from home and we know you’ll love the items that have been donated for this event. With your support, we can continue giving scholarships and awards, supporting women in emergencies, and helping with the food security issues in our community.

Sign up to bid and to see the auction items at https://event.auctria.com/d6d62cda-cc97-406b-9155-3157473757b1/. Our website and our Facebook page both have a QR code to make this even easier.

“See you” Nov. 14-20 online!
