Bidding for the United Way’s The All Around Town Auction came to a close yesterday. Today was chaotic but fun: staff and our wonderful volunteers Brandon Oliver and Margo Szeliga rushed all around town (!) to every bid site, gathering the items and auction materials. We then jammed the phone lines to contact the winning bidders, calling just in time for them to give their auction treasures as Valentine’s gifts. My office is Auction Headquarters, and looks like a wonderful boutique filled with beautiful things (not counting my desk and its usual messy contents). It’s been really fun to meet the winning bidders as they rush in to collect their prizes.
Thank you to the many businesses who donated items/services, thank you to the many bidders, and thank you to the volunteers for making this a success! Thanks especially to these tremendous volunteers: Lisa Cannell, Tom Quinn, Brad Ramsey, Phil Garland, PK Kamath, Margo Szeliga, and Brandon Oliver.
