Dominican Auction and Dinner
Thank You!
The Dominican Republic "Go Team" thanks everyone on the "Home Team" for the resounding success of the gala DR Dinner and Auction event on May 3. Thanks to everyone who helped to set up the event space, to everyone who attended, to everyone who donated items for the auction, to everyone who bid on items, to all of the bid winners, and to everyone who made separate donations for scholarships for the students we support in the Dominican Republic. We're still counting up the proceeds and editing the photographs from last night, and will have a full report and a link to the online album in next week's Friday bulletin. One photograph is in that album now -- check it out here.
