WVPA Convention 2017: Remember your silent auction items


CANAAN VALLEY, W.Va. — The Spirit of Jefferson newspaper added more flavor  to the annual West Virginia Press Association Foundation’s silent auction with unique items from the Eastern Panhandle.
The silent auction is part of the WVPA Convention 2017, which starts today is at Canaan Valley Resort in Tucker County. The convention runs through Saturday.
NOTE: All silent auction items should be turned in at the WVPA convention registration area. Thanks to all of the newspapers, associates and friends for the donations.
The items include:
Amelia Garland in Shepherdstown: A gift bag with three LipSense water-proof, kiss-proof, vegan liquid lipsticks (in three different shades)
An Abolitionist Ale Works beer glass: An Abolitionist Ale Works growler (which lets you buy a refill at a discount), Abolitionist Ale Works stickers and a gift certificate for an Abolitionist Ale Works T-shirt
No Tomorrow Tattoo in downtown Charles Town:
A $100 gift certificate good toward tattooing or piercings plus a No Tomorrow Tattoo T-shirt and No Tomorrow Tattoo baseball cap

“An enjoyable part of the event is shopping through the annual WVPA Foundation silent auction items,” said Smith. “The silent auction is a success because our member newspapers collect items from their unique regions of the state.”Funds raised at the silent auction — along with funds from other donations and revenue — help the WVPA Foundation support projects such as educational programming, internships and scholarships.
