Community Living’s 3rd Annual Quarter Auction & Shopping Extravaganza took place November 14 at a new venue — O’Fallon Elks Lodge off Tom Ginnever and was a huge success.
This year, 100 items were donated by 20 vendors, friends in the community and the Board of Directors. With a close to sell-out crowd, over $4,650 was raised! This will help support programs and services we provide to help enrich the lives of people with disabilities so they can achieve their highest potential.
With a description sheet in hand, attendees were able to view displayed auction items Once the bidding began for either one, two, three or four quarters, depending on the retail value of the item, the fun began!
Participants interested in bidding on items tossed quarters in a collection bin and waited for their number to be called. Some guests took home multiple items. The vendors were on hand to sell items to those who may have wanted an item, but didn’t have luck on their side.
Overall, the night was a success for the attendees, the vendors and Community Living. Click here for more photos.
