13th Annual Auction - ONLINE!

We are in total awe of the outpouring of love and support that you have shown us during our 13th Annual (Online) Auction. When we started the planning process for our 2021 Auction, we wanted to shoot for the moon and go for a goal of $45,000. Not only would that be our biggest auction yet, but we also knew that that amount would help cover the growing number of Rachel's Hugs requests that we see each year so that we never have to turn down an application. Based on the number of requests that we have already seen this year, we are on pace for 40 Hugs in 2021 - a record number for our program! What happened next is beyond our wildest dreams. We are beyond thrilled to say that, with a record number of bidders, we have exceeded that goal and the donations are still coming in so we have decided to now increase our goal to $55,000! To say that we are humbled and overwhelmed is an understatement. We are so extremely grateful to each and every one of you for coming out and showing your love and support far beyond what we could imagine. We sighed a huge sigh of relief and cried tears of joy at the incredible generosity of all of you and can't wait to share all of the smiles that you are helping create! 

Stay tuned! We can't wait to share our final total with you soon.
