Charity Auction

The charity auction will support four charities this year.

Maryland Food Bank

The Shore Leave information table (located at the bottom of the escalator) will once more be collecting pre-packaged food items for The Maryland Food Bank. Any non-perishable food that can sit on the shelf for a while is appreciated. Examples are canned vegetables, fruit, meats/fish and soups. Also, bags and or boxes of rice and beans,milk, soy, rice, etc. If you forget to bring something, or if you are unable to give food, money always work just fine. For every $1 you give the food bank can buy $4 worth of food.

Julien Fleming Memorial Fund Auction

The Shore Leave 36 Wonder Twins auction item to benefit the Julien Fleming Memorial Fund will be auctioned in the main ballroom by Richard Dean Anderson near the end of his talk on Saturday. Join us, and bid on this one-of-a-kind item which Mr. Anderson will autograph – personalized – for the winning bidder. You can also help JFMF pay medical costs for critically or terminally ill children by dropping a dollar or two in the box on-stage immediately following the auction. Past recipients of JFMF grants funded largely by Wonder Twins auction items include The Drew Koenig Medical Fund (()nephew of Robert Picardo) and the granddaughter of our own Lee Warren – "Vic" of Vic's Place.
