If you are unable to attend, but want to participate and help support OXFORD you can!!! Just follow this link and start making a list of what you want to win! The raffle tickets are $1 each, and the winners are responsible for S&H. Dee Bickling has been in charge of the this effort, and she's written in her FML post that a "little extra" be added to the PayPal to cover expenses.

You can place online bids for items in our auction.

I will be handling the bidding for our online bidders.

Send me an email letting me know which item you would like to bid on,
and the max amount you want to bid for that item.

I will place bids for you during the auction and notify you soon after
if you won the item.

shipping amounts to mail that item to you. Please look carefully and
consider this when bidding. Some items are very heavy.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about any item on our
