2020 Spring online auction donors:

As with most non-profit organizations, we rely on fundraising to help us with our operating budget. Some of our bigger fundraisers, like our 50/50 raffle and our annual spring online auction took place during our shut-down in March-May due to COVID-19. Even though times are hard on businesses all around, it was amazing at how many still wanted to support us by donating. In order to help give some business to those that have supported us, below is a list of our donors for our 2020 auction and some of our other fundraiser business donors. If the opportunity allows, we encourage you to please support these businesses as many of them have been long time donors to DMS and other non-profits in the community. Thank you!
