Chair-ity Auction
Mendy Stone is a highly creative person. Everything she, her board and staff do is clever.

May brings the highly successful Green Country All-Star Tournament and Serve for Youth Tennis Tournament for Volunteers for Youth, Rogers County. July is the annual Golf Marathon. This June, however, is the new Chair-ity Auction. Mendy Stone shares some planning ideals below. We will update the post after the event. Always think outside the box!
