|My husband and oldest son at the auction|
In my daydreams, hundreds of people attended bidding on everything as I mingled with perfect ease... Reality turned out to be something entirely different though. There was not one person that attended that someone on the team didn't know. There were only 1-2 bids on most items, and quite a few with no bids at all. But even though the turnout was disappointing, the money raised was not! It turned out that I had raised over $600 from the auction items and the raffle for the Buffalo Wild Wings basket to go toward my fundraising minimum, we raised $160 from the food sales to split, and $80 from the 50/50 raffle to use toward our gear expenses. Not bad for a slightly sad turnout!!
