Hello RHS families,
As you may have heard, the RHS Virtual 80’s Auction was a surprisingly HUGE success and a total blast (from the past)!! The event on 4/24/21 brought the RHS Auction season to a close with a bang. Everyone had such an awesome time meeting up online in Gather.Town, eating a delicious spread of local dinner and drinks, dancing and singing to the best 80’s beats in the dance hall, playing 80’s trivia, showing off their lusciously teased locks and side ponies, getting mixed drink recipes from our resident mixologist, and most especially watching Jay’s auctioneer rendition of SGN!
As for the numbers, (since that’s what everyone’s waiting for), we came out exceeding our goal of $50k, and to date, have raised over $64,000 for our incredible RHS programs!!! Wooohoo, yaah baby! The Fund-a-Need campaign and remaining Party Sign-ups will continue to be open through the end of May at https://paybee.io/@rhsauction.
I continue to be awed by and thankful for the way our community comes together, in words, deeds, and dollars. This money will make an appreciable difference in the quality of the experience and education our kids will receive.
I’m also incredibly thankful for an auction team that quite simply performed magic! A million THANKS to the Auction A-Team, who totally rocked it (and were my rocks) through the super challenging year of event planning in the time of Covid -- Rachel Balsley, Jill Oringer, Jay Wilson, Emily Hung Wilson, Jennifer Schneider, Eric Schneider, Chris Rachowicz, Kala Chandler Renz, Nicole Kelly, Ceanna Stephens, Lauri Klein, Daniel Heath, Stacey Foster Martz, Cindy Ciruli, Amy Skonieczny, Erica Gomes, Vanessa Holzknecht, and Darren Raveneau. You were all remarkable, thank you!!!
All my best,
2021 Auction Chair
