Tea & Auction...A Huge Success!

We held our annual Tea and Auction this afternoon.  We sponsor two scholarships each year and this event serves as our primary fundraiser.  We held it again this year at Orca Adventure Lodge, which has everything we need to hold this event!  Steve is so generous and allows us to use the facility free of charge.  Thank you Steve!

These are our student volunteers.  They served tea and showcased auction items during bidding!  Thanks kids for helping make our Tea & Auction a huge success.  Who knows?  They could be future scholarship recipients!

Guild members volunteer to decorate tables for the event!  It is so fun to see what theme each quilter chooses ... enjoy the tablescapes! 

Aren't they fun!  In our isolated corner of the world ... we know how to be creative!  The goose decoy, in the rubber boot, moved randomly!  What a hoot!  I suppose I should say ... what a honk!

I do not know the exact number of donations we had to auction off this afternoon, but I am sure there were well over 50.  Take a look ...

This queen sized quilt, Hypnotic,  was pieced by Diane W. and Dawn, long arm quilted and bound by Linee'.  It sold at auction today for over $400!  Now that is something to "honk" about!

It was such a wonderful afternoon ... so many to thank ... Jerry our auctioneer ... members for their donations ... to all those who contributed food ... our table decorators ... and to everyone's generous spirit of fun!  Enjoy your purchases and thanks for coming!
