Benefit Dinner & Silent Auction



Your Amazon purchases help support this blog, Thank You

Last night's fund raising event was a great success. Good food and company, fun auctions and a great antidote for our cabin fever. There are too many photos to fit into a single blog entry so I encourage folks to visit the flickr album I have created called Benefit Dinner & Silent Auction. Photos can be downloaded from the album.


The dinner was held in New Ipswich Congregational Church
Italian Entrees with dessert and even a birthday cake for Lynda

Great selection of donated items for the silent auction

Lynda and her son Erik

It was nice to see Roger Swain  a former host on the PBS show The Victory Garden from the 1980s to 2001.
Lynda was the head "plant guru" at Agway till her illness prevented her from working.

In addition to the "silent" auction, we were treated to a live auction by Lynda's brother in law Bill Tobin
Bill is well known to Children's Fair attendees

Lynda's grandson's assist with the auction

Lynda's grandson Rohan came up with the idea of donating his hair to "Locks of Love" in honor of his Grandmother.

Rohan was quite poised in spite of so many onlookers

His brother Tucker watches as only a brother can
