The event was Saturday night. The cocktails and dinner event had a Derby theme, with both live and silent auctions. I could have bid on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade grandstand seats, use of vacation homes at the Jersey shore, Miami, Hilton Head, or Deer Valley, Utah, even a trip to the Emmy Awards show in LA. A reserved parking place near the main academic building went for $5,500 (!).
The slient auction included items at lower price points. My quilt was there.
I think it went for $350; at least, that was the high bid shortly before the bidding closed. I already have an idea for the next one.
I got some quilting done over the weekend too. Come back tomorrow to see my big finish.
