Thanks to everyone who was in attendance, or sent items in advance, to our White Elephant Fundraiser.

Our evening was a HUGE success . . . thanks to all of you.

Extra special thank you to our hostess, Karen Goemaat, for opening up her home and providing the perfect setting for conversation and laughter.

Enormous gratitude to Joan Minklei, our Auctioneer extraordinaire, who raised record setting revenue in record setting time!

Thank you to Laurie Roberts, who made the evening run smoothly while assisting Joan.

Thank you to the "Fundraising Team" - Ellen, Laurie and Sheila - for both planning and executing a FUN night.
