Maplewood Foundation "Back to the 80's 6th Annual Auction Gala"

Wow! Did everyone have a great time at this auction on April 29th or what!  It's rare when so many guests arrive at a themed fundraising event with the majority in costume.  Maplewood Elementary parents, family and friends did not disappoint and the energy and excitement of stepping back into the 80's propelled this event to new fundraising heights.  Over $61,000 was raised on this Saturday evening at the Multnomah Arts Center, with funds to be used for keeping all of the elementary school's Educational Assistants (EA's) on staff.

Along with very successful live and silent auctions and various games, the Paddle Raise raised $19,500, another record for the foundation.  Auctions For Good was so honored to be a part of this event and we look forward to next year at the same location.  Let's build upon this success have some fun again next year.

Thank you Ron Jones (Emcee) aka Rowdy Roddy Piper (that's not Ron Jones above, but another happy guest), kilt and all, for helping make the event run smoothly.  Thanks, too to Michelle Williams, Auction Chair Person and her entire volunteer crew for all they did to put on a great party!! You guys rock!
