Show Your Support Through Basket and Silent Auction Donations

There are a number of ways you can show your support for BCN!  We always appreciate the gift of your time.  Since we are volunteer run, having volunteers willing to donate their time is critical to our success.

If you can’t give the gift of time or you’d like to do more, consider supporting BCN by donating gift baskets or silent auction items.  Throughout the year, BCN hosts a number of fundraising events that often include basket raffles and silent auctions.  We gladly accept gift basket and silent auction items to be used at these events any time of the year.
