I donated a pair of earrings for silent auction. They are waterfall diamond dangle earrings retailed for $595 CAD and the bid started at $250 CAD. A generous young lady bid and won this pair of earrings. Thank you!
A lot of local sponsors donated for silent auction. There were two tables of silent auction items but I only got the picture of the first one.
Venue was great. There are these warrior tomb figures on the wall and mini ones at the bar.
Raffle balloons were $20 each. I bought one and……
Only to later on accidently let it fly loose up to the ceiling, thanks to a good friend of mine who was in charge of looking after the balloon. Yes the red balloon high up on the ceiling was mine and I would never find out what the prize was.
Jackee Guillou performed at the event, everybody enjoyed her music. Jackee is a recent winner of the CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award for a performance at this years 2009 Vancouver Jazz Festival. I didn’t get a chance to take a good close up picture of her so please go to her website www.jackee.ca
Organizers announced who won the trip to Vegas. No, I didn’t win, some other lucky lady did.
The fundraiser was a great success. I was one of the sponsors so my logo was displayed on the wall along with others. 100% of the Remembering 2 Give fundraising proceeds go to the Strathcona Community Centre.
