Denim and Diamonds sparkled for St. Timothy’s


The American Legion sparkled with diamonds and rhinestones at the St. Timothy’s Annual Spring Auction and Dinner, Saturday night, March 21. Auction Chairperson, Marianne Galles, noted, “It was a steady night of auction bidding, raffles and raising funds for the school in a casual blue jeans atmosphere.”  Galles thanked the community, businesses, individuals, parents and kids for their continued support, stating, “You make the fundraiser!”
Auctioneer Frank Sullivan and his crew, who are mostly alums of St. Timothy’s, auctioned off 58 items and generously-donated cash prizes in the live auction, as well as raising over $16,000 in the bidding for the Fund-a-Need program, which will support technology, science, music, math and buy needed serving tables for the school lunchroom. 
Eighty-five silent auction items, including three handmade quilts by the church women of the Social Action Ministry (S.A.M.), multiple gift baskets on a wide variety of themes, and many items for family fun, home and garden, food and drink, His and Hers, kids, and community activity categories, were sold to the highest bidders.
Lacey Wurm, winner of the 2015 Ford Fiesta, was at a wedding reception when friends started calling to tell her she won the car. "I thought everyone was joking,” said Wurm. Her parents were with her to pick up the car, her Dad bought a book of tickets as gifts for Lacey and her brother and " it turned out to be a pretty good investment." The tickets were purchased from Steve Jude.
