Mometum Dance Lab's Silent Auction

I  have been away for most of the summer, but with good cause... I was preparing items for the Momentum Dance Lab's Silent Auction.  I must be forthcoming the official fundraiser was in the spring, but with short notice and a wedding in the works I was some what behind, however the dance company said that fundraising never stops so without further adieu.... 
I would like to introduce
A modern dance company based in Knoxville

How does the silent auction work?
Below you will find items for auction along with their description.
 If one or all tickle your fancy just email me which item you want and the amount your willing to donate for that item. 
On Wednesday September 5th the highest donation for each item will win. 
If you win the item you will receive a donation letter for tax purposes along with your winning item. 
All money raised will be sent to Momentum Dance Lab so they can continue to bring modern dance to the public.
Please email with Silent Auction in the subject line.
I will place top bid amount on each item at the end of each day.
