CoMA's Conference Auction
AUCTION RUNS FROM 10am-5pm Saturday, JULY 16, 2022

It's that time of year again when CoMA would like your donated jewelry/tools/gems/books/etc. for the Conference auction.  This auction is one of the reasons that this and future Conferences are still affordable!  Your cast away or unwanted items are solid gold to the organization and YOU get the tax write off!  It's a win-win!  Anyone can donate to our Auction. You do not have to be a member. We invite all our non-member supporters who value our organization and perhaps participate in our Facebook Groups to donate. We would truly appreciate it!
