INVITES AND EVENTS

CHARITY AUCTION

Our 2019 Charity Auction was a great success! Between the considerate monetary and community donations, in addition to the enthusiastic bidding, we made a grand total of more than $1900! This has given us a good start for this year’s scholarship recipient(s).  A big thank you to our auctioneers Betty DeFouw and Susan Young. Also, thank you to Lois Johnson and Mary Dulude who assisted our auctioneers. And, an additional thank you to Susan Smokoski, Mary Lee Anderson, and Linda Baragar who diligently recorded all the biddings and gathered the money.

We could not have had a successful night if it weren’t for the considerable donations brought in by our members. We also had a number of noteworthy donations, from area businesses and individuals, which helped to make this year’s auction an amazing success. So, a BIG THANK YOU to the following:
