Our Annual Spring District 6 Charities Event was a HUGE success! 58 members and friends attended, representing all 9 chapters in District 6 and 2 chapters in District 7. We raised $1,606 for Grand Chapter Charities!
10 chapters contributed items to the Live Auction, which raised $678. 8 chapters contributed items to the Chinese Auction, which raised $285. Table donations were $620. We had $23 in other donations. 7 chapters had Live Auction winners and 8 chapters Chinese Auction winners. Thanks to everyone, who donated items, bid on items, and/or purchased tickets!
We completed four rounds of Trivia. Palestine Chapter was 1st with 57 points; Lotus Chapter was 2nd with 54 points, and Yondota Chapter (assisted by Fulton and Lillian Chapters) was 3rd with 50 points. Thanks to all for participating and congratulations to our winners!
Each chapter decorated their own table and brought their own food. Their creativity is evident in the pictures below!
So many members stepped in to help with set up, ticket sales, the auctions, clean-up, etc. A special "thank you" to our auctioneer, Shirley Olmstead, District Officers Robyn Moellenberg and Roberta Carter, Jen Garringer, and Triune Chapter..
All 9 chapters participated in this event, which raised over $300 for the Charitable Foundation. The weather cooperated and nearly 50 members enjoyed sampling the 12 soup and chili entries. Congratulations to our winners: 1st Place Palestine, 2nd Place Morris, and 3rd Place Woodbine.
A special thanks to Roberta Carter and Margie & Dick Buhrow, who helped set up and clean up, and to Sue Spore and Diane Worcester, who helped with the pie table.
Thanks to all, who supported this project!
