Another year and a record breaking success -- a grand total of a little over $5000 with cash donations!  All of us here at NASC would like to thank all the people who contributed to the this year's auction, especially the donors without whom we would not have raised the money to help Myrtle Head Savannah Preservein North Carolina.

Major thanks goes to Raccoon Ridge Nursery for donating the most for the second time in a row, and FlyTrapShop & TerraForums for hosting the auction once more.
