Online "Silent" Auction, Registration Deadlines, & More
September 7, 2018
Online Auction of Resources Opens to Help TMS
In anticipation of retirement, Rochelle Jaffe is reducing her inventory of construction-related toys and books. In cooperation with TMS, she is offering some items for sale via an online “silent auction”. TMS members and friends have the opportunity to pick up some difficult-to-obtain items and provide benefit to TMS at the same time (as 50% of the net purchase price will be donated to TMS). Click here to see items being offered and to see information on the silent auction.
