PCWA Basket Auction
Stay tuned for the Fall 2023 event date!
2022 Polk County Women Attorneys Basket Auction Recap:
In addition to enjoying delicious appetizers and an engaging program, guests participated 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.
