Amata Fundraiser a howling success

Dinner, dessert auction and silent auction as well as dancing and generally having fun was a big success

On March 6

On March 6, The Amata Transition House celebrated International Women’s Day with a fundraising event held at the Occidental.  This fun-filled night included dinner, a dessert auction and silent auction. The dance floor was full, rocking to the music from the band Red Haven. Laughter was heard coming from the photo booth put on by Diane Arnell. Community support was overwhelming. The event was sold out and the 50/50 draw jackpot was an amazing $460. Bids were flying back and forth for the desserts with some bringing in more than $100. The Amata Board would like to thank the staff of the Occidental, MC Jeanette Macdonald, all who donated to the silent auction and dessert auction, especially the women of the Church of Latter Day Saints. Also, to all those who attended and supported this worthy cause, we thank you. Money raised will go towards those services for clients not funded through our operational budget.
