Lively Bidding!

Mobile devices made it easy to bid on many great silent auction items while still mingling and visiting with friends and neighbors. And of course we had a great Live Auction after dinner, featuring renowned auctioneer Karen Sorbo, and including fabulous experiences and a terrific trip!
