RETAIL THERAPY: Silent Auction

On Tuesday, I met up with our fabulous Gala Silent Auction chairs Ana Abud and Stephen Hill to get the scoop on this year's silent auction. We have some fantastic items that could be yours if you place the highest bid...

Go local with Chef Monica Pope Gift Certificate. Four guests come to the Saturday morning Midtown Farmers Market at T'Afia, have breakfast with Chef Monica Pope, attend Monica's Green Plum Cooking School class and receive some of the Green Plum Kitchen prepared goods.

Shop 'Til You Drop for Art!

Calling all artists! We want YOU to create an artwork to be exhibited on one of the Underwriter/Sponsor tables expressing the theme for this year’s gala Retail Therapy. You can do so much with a theme like this one with all the variety of shops and stores in the mall (think shop ‘til you drop). Even if sculpture isn’t your usual medium, this is your chance to really let yourself go creatively to create a fun, whimsical or zany piece of art!

The only constraint is that your piece be no wider than 10 inches. There is no constraint on height. Artists who create and donate a table piece will receive two discounted tickets to the event.

If you are interested in donating a piece, please contact Lan Norwood at or (832) 867-1726.
