Once again, the members and guests at the annual auction in support of St. Matthew's House came through. First, they donated the auction items and then proceeded to buy them back. With the able lead of auctioneer Bruce Eccles and his trusty side kick Roger Stewart $4503 was raised through purchases and donations. East Side Marios put on a great breakfast to give folks the strength to raise their hands and bid on items, usually way more than the items were worth. All to a good cause.
Steve Leighfield, the executive director of St. Matthew's House, shared in the good fun and was very pleased with the outcome.
