The silent auction this year will have a lot of games and other goodies. The way it works is simple. There will be a display of auction items and each item or lot will have an auction slip. Just place your bid and if on Saturday at 8:00 pm you have the highest bid, you are the winner. We will be accepting cash or check (made out the the Bastrop County Emergency Food Pantry). You do not need to be present to win, but please make arrangements if it looks like you won't be there and might win.
