After attending another
auction last night, I remain impressed with the skill and finesse which the
Shooting Stars Foundation's Gambado was delivered. I had a fabulous evening
and was able to meet many people. As well, I was able to donate some money
to a good cause. The dinner location, Dockside, was great and the food and
service were excellent. Their staff gave us a choice for dietary
consideration or allergies (i.e. vegetarian, veal or fish). The silent
auction went very smoothly as did the live auction; both Tony Parsons and
the auctioneer were jovial and it showed in their conduct. The auction
staff were pleasant to deal with and the payment line went relatively fast.
The staff were also present to help us claim our bought items. I thought
the security guard was a good idea, as I have heard that some items can
"walk" off before being claimed by their buyers. Please give a hearty thank
you to your staff and your volunteers for me!
