… thanks a million for doing such a great job for us at our 3rd annual “Awesome Auction”. As I told you on the phone, $17,700 was raised this year, compared to $12,000 last year. We’re convinced that, although we did have some higher calibre items this year, our improved results are mainly due to you, Jeff and Ray and your efforts. We received a lot of very positive comments about how the professional auctioneers really added to the fun of the event. I think everyone appreciated your humour and good spirit.
Our fundraising efforts this year have been focused on our Beds Campaign a $400,000 campaign to buy 100 new, electric beds for our patients. Your efforts will help us to buy almost five new beds and will move us closer to our goal.
Please pass on my thanks to Jeff and Ray. They were a great help too. Ray saved the day by pitch-hitting at the last minute and Jeff, I believe, played a big role in getting the bidding higher on each item. Thanks to all. I hope we can do it again next year.
