CRT’s Annual Auction Among Most Successful Yet

The CRT fundraising committee once again pulled off another successful auction. The efforts of the committee and the generosity of donors helped draw $13,500 this year.

Held May 12, many members and guests from near and far enjoyed a fun evening and some aggressive bidding led by auctioneer extraordinaire Barry Pelofsky.

More than 100 people attended and everyone raved about the broad selection of food and deserts contributed by numerous congregants and volunteers and the variety of merchandise and restaurant gift cards available for bids.

A special thanks to the fundraising committee led by Joanne Graham and Becky Kotcher and the committee including Bonnie Siegel, Jeanie and Gary Corn, Debbie and Melissa Schwartz, and the many other volunteers who chipped in. A special thanks to the Kotcher Family for hosting all of the meetings and for gathering a handful of big-ticket items.

Planning is already underway for next year’s auction.  Mark your calendar for the evening of May 5, 2018.
