First Ever Virtual Auction

A Huge Success

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our first ever Virtual Auction was a huge success thanks to the support of our local community, Sun City Clubs and Groups, and the many Sun City artisans and craftspeople.  With 190 donated items ranging from gift baskets, ceramics, jewelry, rounds of golf, and so much more, the bidding was hot and heavy. Special thanks to Vineyard Bluffton Assisted Living and Memory Care, Hargray, Old Towne Bluffton Inn, Bill’s Liquors, The City Golf Pros. We surpassed our ambitious goal of $10,000 which was particularly gratifying because we, like so many other businesses and non-profits were forced to curtail or stop several of our services, while many of our operating expenses continued.

 

Kudos and our immense appreciation to all our donors and sponsors, and our dedicated team who made it all happen. We could not have done it without you, and we are so very grateful to all.
