Fundraising dinner and auction a huge success!

Thank you, thank you, and thank you to everyone who helped with last night's event in anyway!  To the team at Jake's on the Water a very special thank you.  And whether you bought tickets, donated an auction item, purchased an auction item or a raffle ticket, volunteered your time, or sponsored the event, you helped GardenShare in a big way!

GardenShare's eighth annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction set a new record!  The sold-out crowd, amazing auction, and our business sponsors helped GardenShare raise a total of $9,718!  Just for perspective, this compares to $5,783 last year.

It was an amazing evening all the way around.  Here's just a sampling...

The full house during the cocktail hour made it hard
to even get to the silent auction items!

100 people purchased tickets and joined us -
a record-setting crowd for GardenShare and
testing the limits of the great team at Jake's!
(They cane through with flying colors!)

Marc Compeau and Chef Josh Taillon
welcome the guests

Mark Berninghausen was clearly happy to
get his Senators shirt and some SLU hockey
tickets in the auction!

Thank you to Megan Bowdish of Never Tire Farm
who donated plants we used for center pieces and
that guests were able to take home with them.

Very special thanks to our business sponsors!
