The KCA returned to its time honored fundraising tradition.
Motor mouth MC John Altieri verbally controlling, cavorting and cajoling
the alcohol fueled the crowd to a bidding frenzy through the 90 plus prizes.
Items ranged from mega: boat trip around the Island, to mundane: Tom Licari’s
root canal, from cultural: tickets to Hello Dolly, to keeping Carmine’s shirt
Bidding was great fun and the dollars quickly mounted up.
keep your shirt on!
Licari put all the men to shame as
singlehandedly carried the bike around the room
that a yawn…or a laugh?
Mooneys really enjoying themselves!
gets a Root Canal!!!
Event Organizer Amy Wood
I want to thank everyone who made
this years auction such a great success!! The people who donated auction items,
the dinner attendees and all the bidders! I was blown away by the
support. A special thanks to John Altieri who made a fun night even better!
Also to Joanne Padovano and Judi Phelan for all their help. I couldn’t have
done it without them!
We had over 90 prizes.
Some highlights: A bidding war
for Steven Colbert tickets was ended when Karen Wahlberg donated a second set
of tickets. Turning a 600$ bid in 1200.
