The silent auction at the Christmas Dinner on Dec 1 was a great success. We had over 50 items including artwork, items for the home, decorations and lots of home baking. We had to ask for extra tables twice due to the number of items that were available. This is a great problem to have for a fund raiser. Based on what I saw, I think CFUW should open a baking booth at the farmer’s market – great opportunity to raise even more money!
We also held a raffle for a large basket of various goodies. The basket was won by Sue Frizzell and brought in $269.00.
Including the raffle and silent auction the evening brought in a total of $1,502.00.
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make this a great event – Katrina Cross, Cathy Warren, Margaret O’Donnell, June Town, Susan Thomas, Sylvia Doyle, Julie Brown and Kim Leeman. The success of this really goes to you who helped the new-be.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
