Once again the Lexington MS Walk took place on a cold, windy, and cloudy day . The temperatures never left the low to mid forties and it misted a bit early in the day. This greatly affected turn out end the crowd at least half.
If it wasn't for Agapepilgrim and her husband Frank, I could never had pulled the silent auction off! They nearly worked themsselves to death! I also have to mention my husband , two of my sons, my sister, and three of my neices who came and helped us to set up and run the auction. Without them we would have been lost! We raised close to $600 at the auction. I had hoped to double that amount with the number of items we had up for auction. We took a lot of stuff home and made deals on additional items that were way too cheap. Next year I have a new game plan to cut the auction down about 75%. I am going through the bid sheets and only the items that sold well this year.
My Team, MSFighters raised around $2,900. Of that $2,900, I personally raised just over $2,700! Honestly, how can I call that amount of money going to the MS Walk and for research to help all of us anything but a HUGE success!
