Drum roll, please...$93,025!

That's the record-breaking total raised at this year's auction! But that is not all...the Fund-A-Need for the new Maker Space, raised over $6,600 !

From the auction chairs:
None of this would've been possible without the generous support of our Prairie families and the faculty and staff at Prairie. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Sally and I would like to thank our AMAZING auction committee. If you see any of them around Prairie, be sure to thank them too because everyone went above and beyond - we couldn't be more proud to serve as co-chairs.

The acquisitions were out of this world, the decorations helped navigate us around the world and the delicious food and beverages served us well on our trip while we rocked out to some awesome music.

We also want to thank Ms. Shipp for saying "yes" and supporting our many new ideas. And most importantly, we want to thank our husbands, Ward Cook and Adam Morehead who supported us throughout the many months to plan and coordinate Around the World in 80 Days at the Prairie Auction.

Thank you!
Adriana Morehead & Sally Cook

Finally, please note, you will not receive a tax letter in the mail from SMEF. Instead, you should have received an email from BidPal itemizing your auction purchases. If you did not, please contact Adriana Morehead.
