On December 6th, the 5th Annual Women’s Christmas Gala returned to Waupoos Farm where it began.
As in previous years, women were invited to host a table of their friends, providing table decorations and light snacks for their guests and a dessert for the entire group to sample. The cost to participants; just $20.
Although this event was a bit smaller than the last couple of years, there was no less enthusiasm and the sound of conversations and laughter filled the room.
This event is really about building and sustaining our Waupoos community! Participants included past and present farm residents, host families, volunteers and Waupoos supporters as well as some new friends.
The silent auction table was busy all evening and we are grateful to the individuals and businesses who provided silent auction items. Thanks to everyone’s efforts and participation, over $1600 was raised to support the Farm!
A huge “Thank You to Melina, Laura and friends who organized this gala. Lori and Patsy returned to reprise their role as “elves”, selling tickets and helping with silent auction closing. We could not manage without them!
Melina has announced her retirement from Women’s Gala planning after 6 successful events. Our sincere thanks for all her work to create these popular fundraising events over the past five years!
