Also up for grabs are restaurant gift certificates, hotel stays, artwork, jewelry, children's classes and activities and salon services.

Also, the "Taylor's Corner" special section will appear once again this year with auction items that will directly benefit Taylor Love, an Ashburn girl battling a neuroblastoma.

The silent auction is open to the public, with no attendance fee or registration required. Supporters need not be present to win and auction items may be viewed remotely at Those that are able to attend in person are asked to bring a non-perishable donation such as snacks, crayons, coloring books and other similar items, to be made into gift baskets for local community members fighting cancer.
