“Share the Love” Community Auction a Great Success
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Rockland is so happy to announce the results of the 3rd annual “Share the Love” Community Auction held in early February. Through the warmth and generosity of our community and supporters, just over $15,000.00 was raised.
We have been blessed with a community of businesses and supporters that donated items and purchased advertisements. A total of $20,000 worth of goods and services were auctioned off including Cape Air tickets to Boston, New Hampshire Motor Speedway tickets, Celtics Tickets, Museum Passes, a Lyn Snow Original Watercolor along with other local and out of state artists who donated their paintings and many, many more items.
All the money raised from this auction goes right back into the community to support people who are in immediate need of food, heat and health assistance. This time of year is very tough on many families, and also on the organizations that are working to support these families with food vouchers, oil deliveries, and rent or health assistance. That is why three of our main recipients this year are the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry (AIO), the Salvation Army and the Rockland District Nurses Association.
We are also very grateful to have had Bruce and Becky Gammage donate their exceptional skills as auctioneers.
We are so thankful to the entire Knox County area businesses for your support as well as all the auction enthusiasts who bid on our items that evening. If you missed the event, stayed tuned for next year, we have even bigger things planned and we hope you can join us “Share the Love” with our community.
