ACES Education Fund Silent Auction

What do editors want? Clean copy, of course. They also want things like books, pens, games, clothing, toys, food, things that remind them of the joys of words, the beauty of life, the taste of chocolate (or wine). Help ACES raise money for the next generation of scholarship recipients. If you would like to donate an item, please fill out this form.

For questions, please contact Merrill Perlman or Henry Fuhrmann.
