Annual Auction is Highly Successful
Generous bidders helped raise nearly $18,000 for projects in the coming year. Many thanks to all of them and to the Ely area businesses and individuals who donated items for the auction.
In our inaugural ATV raffle, all 400 tickets were sold, with the winner's name drawn at the auction. That raised a further $9,000.
Penny Jars are also doing well this summer, with approximately $5,000 collected toward fighting hunger in our area.
