On Friday, December 2nd, Capabilities, We Can Too, LLC, and the Capabilities Country Club had their annual Holiday Auction. We have this annual event around this time to raise monies for local charities. This year, a total of $3,800.00 was raised through the auction, cash donations, and a 50/50 raffle. We actually beat how much we raised last year by $154.00!
Every year, we also ask all of our employees to give ideas for their favorite charities for the monies to be distributed to. They came up with quite the list this year! On December 15th, checks were sent out to the following agencies:
Samaritan House in Lima, OH; Auglaize County Council on Aging; Agape Ministries in St. Marys, OH; Equestrian Therapy Program in Cridersville, OH; Findlay Hope House; Bittersweet Farms in Whitehouse, OH; Gail Ministries in Celina, OH; the Methodist Church Food Pantry in Troy, OH; Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County; SICSA in Kettering, OH; The Linda Vista, Inc., in Dayton, OH; We Care Art of Kettering, OH; Alpha Community Center in Sidney, OH; Tiffin Seneca Library in Tiffin, OH; Cocoon Shelter in Bowing Green, OH; Way Craft Industries in Bucyrus, OH; SART of St. Marys, OH; and the House of Bread in Dayton, OH.
I would also like to throw out a few special thank yous to some people because this event would not be possible without them: Carolyn Garrison for sending out emails for the event, Belinda Bockrath for playing the role of the banker, Dee Dee Ray for sending out the checks to the agencies, Pam McCuistion for playing helping with the auction, Bill and Karen Blumhorst for setting up the event and giving everyone time to attend this event, Joe and Jan Bidlack for helping set up everything, and last, but certainly not least Gregg Nanson for organizing everything and being the official auctioneer.
