Again ... and again ... and again ... a HEARTFELT THANKS to all who supported Studio 36's Silent Auction Benefit for Haiti. Thank you for the donations, the well-wishes, the bids, the coin collections, the publicity, the prayers ... for everything. You all are amazing and I am so thankful for each and every one of you. xo
The benefit was successful in oh-so-many ways. Many folks brought their coins in to support Isaac's coin drive. Generous bids were made. Local artists gained some publicity for their work. Many of us shared stories of our connections to Haiti. Others asked questions about adoption. Lovely connections were made. And money was raised! It was all good. It was all love and light.
So, here are the numbers thus far:
Total winning bids: $1044.00
Total collected thus far: $764.00
Total to be collected: $278.00
Total expenses for the event: $280.96
ISAAC's COIN COLLECTION DRIVE:
Total collected thus far: $362.00
TOTAL EARNED THUS FAR: $1124.06
I am pleased with the results and hope you all are too. As soon as all monies are collected, we will dole out checks to the organizations that we were collecting for ... and Isaac will make his final decisions on where his coin collection monies will go. I will be sure to post the results here.
Also ... PLEASE NOTE: A few wonderful items did not receive their minimum bid amounts at the auction, and we have decided to sell some of them here on our blog ... in hopes of reaching a wider audience. We are hoping to post one item a day. Please stay tuned as there are some amazing pieces for sale and all sales will continue to benefit Haiti.
Again, thank you all.
