Auction for Advocacy 2019

Thank you for attending Small Talk's 6th Annual Auction for Advocacy: A Night to End Child Abuse on September 12th, 2019 at MSUFCU Headquarters


Supporters came together to bid on over 200 live and silent auctions to support children healing from abuse.


With a new venue came many new elements to this year's event including food stations donated by local restaurants, an open bar generously provided by Grewal Law a mobile bidding system, and much more. It was an amazing evening filled with hope and healing, all thanks to you, our amazing community of supporters!
