10th Annual Auction!
April 22, 2018 marked our 10th anniversary of our auction! It all started in the back room of Joeseppi's in Tacoma where Rachel and her friends filled the room with fun auction items, held a dessert live auction, and raised money for Relay for Life. Fast forward to 2018, where we filled Steel Creek in Tacoma with over 300 auction items, 250 bidders, and raised $31,000 for Rachel's OWN foundation. Words can't express our gratitude toward all of you for helping us keep her dream alive. Thank you to all of you for your donations, volunteer hours, planning expertise, etc. - we couldn't have done it without you!
A special thank you goes to Razhida and Steel Creek for opening their venue for our event and donating 15% of their proceeds to our foundation, to Katie Shields from Mary Bridge for speaking about our Rachel's Hugs Program and it's impact on their patients, and to Darren Zemanek for taking such great pictures of the evening!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 28th, 2019 for our 11th Annual Auction!
