Robin Russel was the hit of the evening, as he conducted the auction. For many, it was there first live auction.

Some hands never went down as they did not realize when their bid was accepted. Robin reminded them they didn’t want to bid against themselves. Several people were heard to say that they completed their Christmas shopping.

Over 90 business and people in the community contributed items to the auction and raffle. St. Rita’s would like to thank them for there generosity.
