The Adventure Auction - Thanks!

Rural Action would like to give a huge “thank you” to everyone who came out to the Adventure Auction last Saturday at the Hocking College Student Center. Despite the depressed economy we raised over $18,000 at the auction – more than $3,500 more than last year!

There were 53 silent auction packages, which were full of adventure opportunities including spa packages, weekend getaways, golf outings, whitewater rafting, kayaking, dance lessons, and more. In addition, there were 19 live auction packages with even grander adventure opportunities, including a weeklong stay in Paris, a package from Hocking Hills Zipline, a home-cooked Vietnamese dinner, and a Mozzarella-Making Workshop from Della Zona.

The event was organized by the Adventure Auction Planning Committee, which included Mary Anne Flournoy, Francoise Cauchie (who donated her Parisian apartment to the auction), as well as Development VISTAs Calaina Goodyear and Jordan Vincent, who co-chaired the event. Others who were part of the planning process included our executive director Michelle Decker, graphic design VISTA Sarah Warda, media VISTA Clay Flaherty, VISTA leader Tori Patterson, and our work-study intern Christa Rice. A special thanks also goes out to John Kotowski and Greg Bikowski for going above and beyond their responsibilities as board members.

However, this event would not have been possible without the generous support and contributions of our sponsors and donors.

Giles Lee of Hocking College did an outstanding job as our volunteer emcee, and even threw in some surprise auction items at the end that helped to raise almost $500 in additional donations! Thanks to Pat and Wanda Sheridan of Shamrock Auction Services for graciously donating their services for the event. We would also like to congratulate board member Greg Bikowksi’s jazz trio, Las Cuerdas, for putting in an excellent performance that helped to set the perfect tone for the evening. Lastly, we want to offer our thanks to Ed from Purple Chopstix who catered the event with a delicious buffet. There was also a cash bar with locally brewed beer from Jackie O’s and each table received a complimentary bottle of delicious Shade Winery elderberry wine.

We also must thank the many volunteers who donated their time to help out with the event: Piper Avalokita, Brian Blair, Garrett Bunyak, Libby Chapman, Ron Chapman, Leo DeLuca, Steve Elrich, Howard Fisher, Suzanne Fisher, Kevin Fletcher, Phil Green, Bo Hysong, Badger Johnson, Chris Jones, Paul Logue, Sarah Logue, Cayla Mattern, Lauren Maransky, Susi Rankis, Rose Roe, Kari Searl, Heather Sheets, Nicole Shippen, Mike Steinmaus, Brandon Stephens, Virginia Sustarsic, Maureen Wise, and Candi Withem.

We would also like to remind everyone who attended the event and visited the photo booth – you can visit this website in the coming days to view the pictures and select any prints you would like to order.

On behalf of Rural Action and the Adventure Auction Planning Committee, THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this year’s auction an overwhelming success! If you would like to join the committee for next year’s event, contact Jordan Vincent (jordan@ruralaction.org).
