Huge thank yous to everyone who made ACT’s Benefit Auction a success. Despite heavy competition from the World Series and various Halloween events, we raised over $4000. Woo-hoo! Thanks to all of you who came out to support ACT and bid each other up. Thanks so much to all our auction volunteers, leading lady Kristina Troon, Shelly Freberg, Michelle Cleveland, Andy Davis, Lisa Ferguson, Siena Kaplan, Chris Clyne, Chris Canfield and the ones I don’t even know about. And enormous thanks, again, to the entertaining and delightful team of Troon Family Auctioneers, stellar auctioneers and exemplars of community service.
