Thank you to everyone who came out to support this year's Date Auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. We had more than 100 students from the Business and Law schools attend to bid on 20 dates.
All together we raised more than $2500 with the highest bid of the evening totaling $230! Hugh Gwen, a local representative from the Red Cross who stopped by to thank the participants, found the event enjoyable. He said that the relief mission in Haiti will take years and that it will be a multi-agency effort.
Once again, thank you for showing your support for this cause. A big thank you Natasha Gagger for helping me organize the event. And a round of applause goes out to the auctioneers: Sara Kyle, Justin Parker, Abbi Kuch and Kathleen Ketchum. To all the participants, thank you for your bravery and willingness to donate a date for a good cause!
If you were unable to attend last week’s event, but would like to contribute to WGWIB's donation to the Red Cross, please see me by March 1. All checks must be made payable to "WGWIB.”
