While we’re still tallying the final numbers from the Youth Mission Dinner and Auction, I feel comfortable enough to release the preliminary results for this year’s fundraiser.
I’m pleased to report that we raised over $13,500 from our dinner and auction on Sunday night.
We had a lower turnout than previous years with slightly fewer auction items available (and no live auction). While this is not the most we’ve ever raised from this event, I’d say that it was one of our most successful.
Combined with Sam Henderson’s very successful Red Envelope Fundraiser, which raised $3,300, we’re right at $16,700 for this season of fundraising.
I expect to receive a few more stragglers to add to this amount, but I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone on staff, as well as all the volunteers, who helped make this event a success. It’s one of my favorite events of the year, and something we can all be proud of.
Many thanks to Dani Wiggs for taking fabulous photos and for running the auction. Check out her album on SmugMug.
