    Classes for Kids or Adults

    museums or invitations to Magic Castle

  • Walgrove Businesses! (donate a service or something you’ve made)
  • Toys, Memorabilia, Sporting Goods, etc!

Willing to reach out to local businesses? Have a business connection or idea for an auction donation? E-mail auction@friendsofwalgrove.com or just use your six words to ask the business yourself! Below are links to a letter you can provide to a business you are reaching out to and a donation form they may use for their taxes.
