As a very exciting last-minute added attraction, NCPA member Danna Wilberg brought in a totally unique donation that we used as a surprise live-auction event—six boxes of eight fancy chocolate-dipped strawberries dressed in her book-covers. It appeared as though she donated six of her books, “The Red Chair” and “The Grey Door,” but the contents were edible. Very classy Danna, and those berries were delicious as well as gorgeous!. Thank you!
Well-known author of more than 133 books, Self-Pub-Guru Dan Poynter graciously donated two books. They didn’t make it in time for the banquet, but were received in time for a quick live-auction at our May 2015 general meeting. After a feisty bidding frenzy, Ted Witt was high bidder (Thanks,Ted!) Those proceeds were added to the 2016 Scholarship fund.
In addition, Daniel Pastre and Ron Javor very generously donated their book sales at the banquet that evening to the Scholarship fund (extra thanks, Daniel & Ron), giving a new grand total of $745 for the NCPA 2016 Scholarship!
We’d like to hit that $1,000 mark again this year, so we’re gladly accepting all suggestions and any monetary donations to reach our goal. Only $255 to go!
Thanks everyone, for your very generous support at our 22nd NCPA Awards Banquet.
