Final Auction Numbers & Pictures!
Last year, the 9th Annual Benefit Auction happened less than a month after Tropical Storm Irene brought devastating effects to Vermont. The Auction Committee had a brief meeting to decide whether to continue on with the auction. We decided to give it a try… the auction raised $31,869 (gross) in 2011. That was an amazing for the camp auction! The highest auction number before 2011 was in the mid $20K.
I think auction success in 2011 owes thanks to a gift certificate program to help local business, stirred emotions from things like power outages and road closures and a lot of generous people.
To what does the auction owe it’s success this year? Over $33,000 was raised (gross) – $33, 538 in fact! If you were at the auction or inspired by it in any way and have some insight on how this year’s auction raised even more money than last year leave a comment, please.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all those who gave generously to support the mission of Bethany Birches Camp and help subsidize camp programs so any camper can come regardless of financial reality!
