The Enderby Lions Club kindly thanks the many individuals, organizations and businesses that so generously donated to our 24th annual Children’s Christmas Auction Nov. 22 at the Paddlewheeler Restaurant and Pub in the Enderby Howard Johnson Inn.
Your generosity is truly appreciated by our members, and by the recipients for the funds raised.
We also would like to thank the patrons that came to buy the goods and services.
We proudly announce that this project produced nearly $13,500 that will be largely used for the children of Enderby and district. We are also proud that we had 42 Enderby Lions members participating in the project, contributing more than 250 person-hours and travelling about 450 kilometres.
The retail value of the goods offered was just over $19,500, so auctioneer Noel Tarzwell was successful in generating a return of nearly 68 per cent of retail value from the 73 bidders and 54 buyers.
Thank you to all for a job well done.
