On Thursday, October 29, the Polk County Women Attorneys (PCWA) will host the 19th Annual Basket Auction event; a charity fundraiser to benefit the Young Women’s Resource Center (YWRC).

In addition to a delicious dinner and virtual program, guests can participate in a silent auction of one-of-a-kind products and services. Popular basket themes from previous years include coffee/wine lovers, cooking, girls’ night/spa, weekend getaways, sports, babies, pets, brides, bookworms, etc. The baskets are filled with high-­value items, including tickets, electronics, designer bags, season passes, jewelry, art, memorabilia and fine dining.

While many auction attendees are local female attorneys and judges, the auction is open to the public. Professionals in other fields also look forward to attending the auction each year, as it’s a great opportunity to share your business with a variety of new customers while supporting a good cause.
