PATH’s Fourth Annual Online Auction

PATH is gearing up for our fourth annual online auction, which will take place at the end of November, just in time to do your holiday shopping! We are actively seeking donations for the auction including gift baskets, gift certificates, products, or services.

Don’t have a business and still want to help? We’d gladly accept a gift basket donation of any kind for the auction. Popular baskets from last year include a pasta basket, a doggy basket, and a basket of homemade jams/jellies.

This auction is PATH’s main yearly fundraiser and we need your support. The money raised by this auction goes directly to the many programs of parent support, advocacy, and training offered by PATH to families of children with special needs. With major budget cuts in Connecticut, we need your help now more than ever.

If you have a something you’d like to donate to the auction, please contact Auction Coordinator Marni McNiff for details at mmcniff@pathct.org.
