Our first ever online auction was a wonderful success. We raised $11,425 by the close of the auction on Saturday evening, December 10. Since then we have received additional funds through donations and the raffle of $205, giving us a total so far of $11,630 – 97% of our goal.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to our generous donors who provided so many wonderful items and events, and to all those who participated in the auction as bidders. Congratulations to the lucky winners! And many thanks to all who volunteered their time to make this auction successful – Debbi Zarek and her team of solicitors, Janet Hall and Kate Cowperthwait; Pam Weiss, who helped with testing the software and auction set-up; Bev Bach and Michele Tashman for helping with the auction set-up; Paul and Matt Pinson who helped with the Saturday night closing activities; Jon Claney for his fabulous technical support and participation on the core team; and Nancy Pinson for her participation on the core team. We couldn’t have done it without you.
