Congratulations to Wehrly’s Auction Service for a very successful St Judes benefit auction last evening.  There were approximately 15 auctioneers from the Central Chapter in attendance.  With generous donations and lively bidding, $8,982.00 was raised for St Judes.  There was a St Judes representative in attendance who successfully sold a few items, with our VP Gary Mentzer giving her a quick coaching lesson.

If you missed this auction, Ralph and Edie Lesh are hosting a St Judes benefit sale on Monday evening April 24 at their auction house in Newport.  Consider attending and help Lesh’s have a successful evening.  Your Central chapter supports both of these sales with a donation.

Here is a picture of Charlie W who was sporting a new hat for the evening.  It was a fun evening, in spite of an incident with a fresh egg-story for another time.
