Santa's Auction 2019 was a great success thanks to so many wonderful donors, sponsors and all of you who shopped! This was a little different with the silent auction being hosted online with Givergy but the risk paid off with nearly double the amount raised through the auction with fairly similar products to previous years. Keep your eyes peeled for some more fun online bidding this year!
Thanks to the generosity of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton who covered the costs of hosting the annual Christmas Party including our room for the auction once again, we were able to minimize hosting expenses and net over $32,000!
Foundation President, Shirley Williams brought greetings including thanks to the fantastic sponsors, that we'd like to say one more thank you, below. Our most successful raffle was, not surprisingly, the sparkle raffle which sold just shy of 100 tickets!
The event was largely a success thanks to the many wonderful volunteers who made the event happen as well as the committee members and co-chairs! The Foundation's Board of Governors were all-hands-on-deck during set up, and another 10 volunteers joined to operate the activities during the event including 2019 Volunteer of Distinction, Judy Shewchuk. Judy and her husband Lonnie doubled the 50/50 pot from last year!
Cheers to a great event and see you in 2020 from chairs, Sharon Gregresh (Century 21 Masters) and Gail Docken (MaxWell Progressive)!
