Silent Auction

Now is the time to start thinking about what you would like to donate for the Tejas Storytelling Festival silent auction. March is not that far away. Maybe you have books or posters that you no longer use. Look in your closet for a special shawl, hat or skirt that someone may be able to use for programs. There are plenty of treasureres out there. Help TSA raise funds while you clear away clutter. Contact Kay Tobola, tejasstories2tell@gmail.com, 713-408-1958
