Charity Auction and Dinner 2019 edition raises over $74,000
The Children’s Treatment Centre had another banner event on the weekend as just over $74,000 was raised for the centre.
Hundreds took in the Charity Auction and Dinner at the Best Western Cornwall on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019.
The night started with auctioneers Peter and Helen Ross selling off four cakes by Judy Stewart, raising $1,125. The Bailey’s Tiramisu Trifle fetched $400 alone.
Then roughly 60 items were up for bidding including trips, jewelry, hockey tickets and liquor. An anonymously donated yellow gold and diamond tennis bracelet with 38 diamonds, weighing 1.5 carats, sold for $1,375.
There was also a silent auction and a draw for travel tickets donated by Air Canada and by Donna Flanigan’s Travel by TPI which raised thousands of additional dollars. There were also 10 more draws for $50. In the air of fundraising for the center that treats children suffering from abuse, some of those winnings were donated back to CTC.
With some corporate and personal donations during the night, the final total was $74,344.
