Success of our 9th Annual Dinner and Silent Auction
The Lee County Homeless Coalition held their 9th Annual Dinner and Silent Auction on November 2, 2013 at Colonial Country Club in Ft. Myers.
This year we had 2 Gold Sponsors, Aubuchon Family Funds and Bireley Family Funds. In addition the event had 5 Silver Sponsors, and 8 Bronze Sponsors. There were over 200 guests, and more than 100 gift baskets, paintings, and gift certificates donated for the Silent Auction. The Coalition raised approximately $20,000.
The event had a Roaring Twenties theme and many of our guests dressed up. There was also a wonderful guest speaker, Casey Jones, co-author of “Miracle on the Hudson” and last passenger rescued from the plane that crashed in the Hudson River. Guests also enjoyed music performed by the Rocker band.
The Coalition appreciates the community coming together and supporting our efforts to end homelessness in Lee County, and making this event a success. Many thanks to all of you for your support and contributions
