LCDS Valentines Charity Auction

On February 8, 2014 LCDS held their Bi-Annual Valentine Charity Auction at the Brigden Fairgrounds. The house was packed with over 300 attendees and an overwhelming number of donated auction items which made for an exciting evening of bidding and fellowship. Catering by Kitchen Creation, ice sculptured punch bowl, chocolate fountain and chocolate covered pretzels (a new favorite!) were enjoyed by guests while auctioneer John Stevens worked his magic. Hundreds of items from signed hockey jerseys to bird houses, handmade quilts to butter tarts, combined with our guests’ generous bidding, this year’s auction brought in over $53,000. We are still in shock! We would like to thank this year’s outstanding and hardworking Auction Committee, Janet Smith, Maureen McKellar, Erin Allensen, Elaina Burr, Kim Shelley, Don McGugan, Adelle Stewardson and Debbi Potter as well as all the individuals and businesses that contributed to this event through donations or sponsorship.
