The donated item is a four-piece sterling silver buckle set and lizard belt, an item that is consistent with the tastes of the silent auction participants.

The three International Trading Corp. stores that carry J.W. Cooper items have done so because of the quality workmanship and unique design each piece features. "They've picked a clean array of sets that go with the contemporary look of their culture," says Rauchwerger.
