The spring fundraising auction and benefit, “It Only Takes A Minute”, was a great success. The event offered over 250 neighbors, friends and supporters an evening of wonderful food, beverage and fun. The creative theme mimicked a popular game show and allowed guests to try their best at working challenges set up throughout the room. Music and a silent auction rounded out the festivities. Proceeds from the evening were applied to the 2012 Annual Fund, which the Community Chest uses to distribute much needed funds to the local human services agencies that it serves.
Thank you to our volunteers for the evening and to our emcee extrordinaire, Peter Donohoe.

Amanda Hickman, who chaired the event and spent countless hours preparing every detail, deserves special recognition.
