Fundraiser a success
August 28, 2008 · Updated 1:26 PM
On Oct. 20, Soroptimist of Marysville, a womens service organization, held our annual auction, a main fundraiser for our projects of service. Thanks to our members and so many good community friends who were in attendance, the auction was highly successful.
A special thank you goes to Maurice King of High Tech Solutions for his computer expertise and many volunteered hours of work, to Ross Miller and family for monetary donations and hard work in ensuring beautiful decorations and to the businesses and individuals who donated wonderful items and services to be auctioned. Tulalip Best Western Inn is to be commended for their spirit of service in our use of their caterer and facilities. Kelley Lee, auctioneer extraordinaire, was a key player in our success. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to this successful venture.
All monies raised from this auction will be returned to the community this coming year. We award scholarships to high school students, support the food bank and hospice, the YMCA Invest in Youth Program, a battered womens shelter and so much more.
Thank you to everyone who had a hand in this very worthwhile event.
Caroline Brown and Carol Biegler,
