We told you last week about all of the live auction items up for bid at the annual Boca Grande Child Care Center fundraiser, which will be held on Monday, March 18 at the Boca Grande Club at 6 p.m. This year’s theme is “Kids in Kandyland,” and it seems more than apt considering this year’s silent auction items might make you feel that way.
