Bring your quarters (approx. $10 to $20) and get ready to have some fun! Each attendee will receive one numbered bidding sign. A bucket will be placed at the center of each table, and a gong will be placed on the stage. The items up for auction will be priced at 25 cents, 50 cents, or 75 cents. Each person who is interested in bidding on the item will be asked to place the requested amount into the bucket (25 cents, 50 cents, or 75 cents). The “auctioneer” will call out bidding sign numbers. The last number called when the gong sounds will be the winner! Sound confusing? You may just have to see it to believe it, but you’ll have a great time! We’ll have a wide variety of items up for auction. Each attendee is required to bring one new, unused item for auction ($15 minimum) as the entry fee (think holiday regifting).

Save the Date: Free Living Trust Seminar

Planning Is Essential—Do You Have a Plan? Everyone should attend this seminar, even if you have a will or a trust. A good estate plan coordinates what happens to your home, savings, investments, and retirement accounts. Learn how to appoint someone to make healthcare and financial decisions for you when you are unable to do so. If you do not, a court may decide for you. Why a will is not enough. Why many people with living trusts will end up in probate. Learn how to avoid it. If you have your plans finalized, find out what may have changed, needs updating, or is still applicable in Arizona. Guests will have an opportunity for questions after the seminar with Attorney Richard M. Dwornik. Presented by Dwornik Law Firm. Must RSVP to reserve your seat. Limited seating.
