Marie Dicristina reports that last Saturday’s dinner & auction went great (that’s Carol Jackson at the right; here are a gallery of photos from the night):

Soroptimists want to send out a big Irish thank you to all that attended last Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Extravaganza Dinner and Auction. There about 150 attendees who helped raised over $14,000! Corned Beef and Cabbage dinners along with Vegetarian Pasta dinners were served and complimented by dessert cakes from Daniel. The Raffle and the Silent Auction were very well received and Doug Bison helped make the Live Auction great fun. People enjoyed themselves while helping their fellow islanders.

This fundraiser will help provide funds for the scholarships, women’s emergency fund, many awards to local women and other club projects. For more information about the Friday Harbor Soroptimists please go to www.sifri.org. Again, thank you for supporting our events.
