Thank you to everyone who took part in our 2nd Annual Ugly Sweater Party! After changing the format and moving the event online, we were delighted to see so many supporters bidding on auction items, sharing their ugly sweater photos, and donating. When the auction closed Sunday night, $25,000 had been raised for our programs serving children and adults of all abilities. Now that’s some holiday cheer!
Join us in giving a very special thanks to Easterseals Washington Board Chair Gregg Picard and the entire Board of Directors for their dedication to making this possible. And a very, very special thanks to Michelle and Mike Killmer from CENTURY 21 North Homes Realty for organizing such a successful online auction. We couldn’t have done it without you!
So, how did it all happen? This year’s event had:
With so many supporters, this year’s auction was very competitive; many items received more than 10 bids! Some of the most fought-over items were the children’s art pieces from Growing Years Child Development Center and the Olympic Peninsula Autism Center. The children were thrilled to hear that everyone loved their art. Keep an eye out for more art from our programs at future events!
Thank you to everyone who submitted their festive ugly sweater photos. Seeing your smiles and your ugliest sweaters was a real treat. Congratulations to the 3 entrants who were randomly selected to win some Easterseals Washington swag. Our winners are:
If you didn’t win the auction items you had your eye on, but still want to bring joy to the families we serve, make a donation today.
We can’t wait to see you all (in-person) next year for our 3rd Annual Ugly Sweater Party!
