Saturday will also have our annual auction. This is one of the most important fundraising events of the year and we are asking for donations. Liberty themed items are ideal, but anything of interest is welcome. In the past we have had items ranging from books to a Kindle, even baked goods and gift baskets. Please donate new or barely used items so more people can bid. Gifts to the Libertarian Party of Illinois are not tax deductible.
Contact convention@lpillinois.org to donate or volunteer.
