Churubusco Child Care Center Auction is a success

I want to Thank Jerry Ehle ~ our wonderful auctioneer and Stephanie Krider ~ our awesome caterer for their Generous Support of the Child Care Center by donating their time to our evening. How wonderful they were and I cannot explain the pride I have knowing that people still care and give as openly as they do, Thanks so much!!!! 

Thanks to all the community members that stopped in to donate items and thanks to the local businesses that donated items! You all are so generous! Thanks to the Churubusco Rotary for allowing me to drop in on their meetings all September long to beg for people to buy tickets and donate items. You guys are truly a generous lot of people! We are lucky to have all of you in our community!

Thanks to the park for letting us use the Scout Building and Thanks so much to the Boy Scouts for scheduling their meeting around our night!!! You all ROCK!!!!

Thanks to all the board members for their time and effort in our evening and throughout the last six months! Thanks to all the Churubusco Child Care Center’s teachers for their various talents of making items, donating items, and volunteering time! Everything has to work together for us to have pulled off such a successful evening for our very first time at this!  We were hoping for $3k and we surpassed that so we are very happy! Thanks to everyone who bought tickets, even though I did not see some of you there, it was a great way to donate to the daycare! Thanks for those who showed up at the door to buy tickets and then spent their hard earned money on items for the daycare to benefit! Some items went well below fair market value and other items went way above fair market value! That’s the way an auction goes and we could not have done it with- out our auctioneer Jerry, he was great! Thanks to the people that he picked on, “Frank,” you are a great sport! Thanks to all!!! 

We will be having another auction next year and hoping to top this year! So be on the look-out for us next September bothering you to come to our auction again!!! 

Don’t forget that Churubusco Child Care Center is a not for profit organization and all donations are tax deductible!
