Hi Everyone,


Each year our affiliate chapters and divisions create goodie-filled themed
auction baskets for convention attendees to bid on to help the work of the
NFB of California. This year is no different. The auction may be virtual-but
the baskets are very real-and if you are the winning bidder, your basket
will be delivered right to you. 


Please visit nfbcal.org/convention/bidding

account.  If you pre-registered with the convention, your username will be

any punctuation.  For example, if you registered with the phone number:
818-234-5678, your password would be: 8182345678.  If you did not
pre-register with the convention or if you didn't provide enough
pre-registration information to create an account, you can register with the
auction site directly and bid on items.
