Last weekend was the annual St. Mary's Serendipity auction. This years theme was "A Knight to Remember" and the gym was dressed up in a castle theme.
To celebrate the theme, we rented costumes from Anchorage and reserved 2 tables for a batch of peasants, knights, maid marians and kings. This kept the spirits high, bidding steady and when dessert time came-it was dessert mania!! The dessert auction is an annual tradition at the auction. Cakes go anywhere from $50 to $700! By the end of the evening, there were 4 desserts at our two tables, 3 of which were consumed on site.
I won't say too much more about the auction except that I was just awestruck with the generosity of the community for St. Mary's. There were a few tear jerker moments where prior St. Mary's students gave testimonials about the impact that St. Mary's had on their life. The stories from prior students was a great reminder of why we were all there that evening and it was fun to share in the night with good friends.
