In this instance, however, Angie's talent for putting things
together well has not so much to do with broken bones and more to do
with arthritis. Angie is the captain of the team that MOC put together
to walk in the Arthritis Foundation Walk, which will be Saturday, May
5. In putting together efforts to raise funds, Angie put together a
grouping of baskets for the MOC Silent Auction. Each themed basket - or
bucket or collection - featured donated items that Angie arranged into
a theme to entice the bidders.
This year's themes featured such baskets as time for tea and gardening, vacation getaways, movie nights for the family, places to play (Pigeon Forge, at a Nashville Titan's game, Gatlinburg and Ripley's, for example.) and baskets for those who just like pretty jewelry.
The silent auction was at the MOC offices and lasted one week. Not finished with the fun or the fund raising, however, Angie and the MOC group went on to have a chili cook-off, brownie/cookie bake-off and will finish their group efforts this week with a "dress down" day.
