A night of fun, food & community support

The Haliburton Rotary Club had their 24th annual fund raiser auction and banquet last night.  Close to 100 people attended to bid on about 170 items donated by area businesses and artists.  For the fifth year in a row I was pleased to act as their “auctioneer”.  I’m not really an auctioneer in the traditional sense.  I like to think I’m a barely controllable combination of a fast talking side show barker and an amiable Don Rickles.  The audience particular enjoys supporting my wife when I pick on her.  We had some good laughs.

There were some amazing bargains including a 50″ HDTV and a 42″ HDTV, a $1000 vacation voucher, hockey tickets, and an autographed shirt from our young local star with the Colorado Avalanche – Cody Hodgson.  My dear wife created a wonderful piece of stained glass art with a dimensional butterfly.  I’ll be posting a picture of it in Jane’s Glass page. 

All the money raised goes to support the local work of the Rotary Club. We should have a dollar number today.  A great group of people and I was delighted that we could help.
