Auction- Thanks to All!

We simply could not have done it without you! After a week of online bidding, and a fun closing event, we are happy to report that the funds raised by the online auction exceeded the goal we had set. We had 133 auction items, 111 of those were won. There were 88 registered bidders. The total raised, after fees, was $6,234. The proceeds will go to the Operating Fund.
Vicki Cunningham won the raffle at the closing. She won a basket that contained three bottles of champagne, two hand-thrown pottery goblets, cheese and crackers, and chocolate truffles! Another lucky bidder will be able to spend a week in Mexico at a lovely resort! Some fabulous art pieces will adorn new walls, and the gorgeous quilts will be keeping some congregants cozy and warm.
We are tremendously grateful to everyone who helped make it a great success. We especially want to thank everyone who so generously donated an item for auction. And to each of you who participated in the event. Gloria Holland and Joel Woodman provided wonderful running commentary throughout the ZOOM closing event. We thank them for bringing the “fun” to our fundraiser!! The Auction Team consisted of Christine Ertl, Sharon Pierson, Bonnie Hummel, Tracey Boyle, Margrethe and Greg Gregg, Deborah Emeny. Sharon and Bonnie worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get it all organized and going. A special congratulations to all who placed a winning bid. We hope you all had as much fun as we did!
