Greetings Alaska School Nurses!

The Auction/Gift Basket committee for our upcoming ASNA conference in April are Martha Hughes, Claudette Schlegel and Francie Martin – nurses from KPBSD are requesting your help.

Writing to request three things:

  1. To put together a themed auction basket for the ASNA conference in April
  2. When you have a basket in the making underway or know what plan you have, please send me an email with the basic theme.
  3. When complete - include 4 things to associate with your basket:
  • Name, Title or Theme of the basket
  • List of what is Included in the basket (the "ingredients")
  • Estimated Retail Value of the basket
  • List of Donors

We hope you have fun with it!

Below are some ideas – but please run with any other ideas you may come up with!  (If more than one basket comes up with same theme – that will be fine).
