    Our online auction was AMAZING! Our goal was a very ambitious $100,000. We did not make it, but we are still incredibly pleased with the total of nearly $75,000 raised. More than 100 individual and business donors contributed auction items and more than 150 people bid. It was a difficult year to ask for donations, but so many businesses surprised us with an immediate and enthusiastic YES. We're so grateful.
