An Outstanding Silent Auction at Las Cruces

The 3rd IOS Silent Auction was another huge success. We had a record number of donated items including oak seedlings, books, T-shirts, artwork, handmade products from oak wood, and many more. A sincere thanks to everyone who donated items; we could not have done this without your help. We also raised a record amount of money from this auction, coming in at $3,133. This should allow us to sponsor even more student attendees for the 11th IOS Conference in 2025. We were able to sponsor five students to attend the Las Cruces Conference.

A special thanks to the Doña Ana County Master Gardeners, led by Jeff Anderson, who helped set up the auction and take payments. Start thinking about items you can donate to the next IOS Conference!
