Rice & Beans Dinner Silent Auction Items

Every year, at the Rice & Beans Dinner, the Silent Auction is a major attraction.  All items have a beginning bid of less than $100, although sometimes the bidding goes beyond that level.  People donate dozens of items—jewelry, candle sticks, CD’s and DVD’s, elegant cups and saucers.

Here are a few items this year.
