The Old Fashioned Community Auction helped Southwest Seniors Housing Inc. inch closer to its $2 million fundraising goal.
Held at the Legion Hall on November 29, the event, which included live, rainbow and silent auctions as well as a pie and bake sale, was the hub of action on the Friday evening. The event was packed and for about three hours, Wright’s Auction Service called for bids, while the participants called back. In the end, everything tallied more than $48,000 for the cause.
“It was just a wonderful evening,” said committee member George Heide as soon as the auction ended. “Everyone had a lot of fun and we were able to raise a lot of money for our project.”
