Last night our student ward held a Goods and Services Auction to earn money for Pennies By The Inch. The money raised from this fundraiser goes directly to help pay for the care of very sick children at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City.
All I can say is, these guys blew me away last night.
It was truly humbling to watch the energy in the room and to see these (mostly) college kids, sacrifice SO MUCH to be able to help these sick children.
Here is a table full of some of the things that were auctioned:
Porter auctioned a Wii Party with Snickerdoodles. Bill auctioned an Evening with his telescope and hot chocolate on top of Buckskin Mountain.
This is what I auctioned:
Other items auctioned were:
A 15 minute foot rub
Tickets to the Symphony
Gift Certificates to Taco Bell
Vacuuming of the interior of car
An afternoon of riding motorcycles with the Bishop
Movie and Pizza night
A double date with Curtis and Nate, limousine included
Dinner date with Kassie
Handmade bookcase by David
And the list goes on and on.
Dustin was our auctioneer, and I seriously don't think we would have done so well without him. He was fantastic!
So, how much did we raise?
Try, over $1000.
