KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS #7243 CHARITY AUCTION
OCTOBER 7TH THROUGH OCTOBER 10TH
The following information is per an email from Your Charity Auction (YCA) Administrator Mikala Shumway to DGK Bob Mohle. Mikala and Mary Peterson provided an overview of the online auction and how it works prior to our May 10th regular council meeting, minutes of which were distributed to all Brother Knights. Mikala will organize the overall auction effort and provide a turnkey platform for the online auction. Mary, who is familiar with YCA from a user’s perspective, has offered to manage our auction. DGK Bob Mohle is the point of contact for Council 7243.
OUR EVENT WILL BE HERE SOONER THAN WE THINK, 10/7/2021 – 10/10/2021.
We are off to an impressive start on auction items due to Bob’s efforts to secure donations to the auction at a fair market value (FMV) of $3,650. It is up to the remainder of our Brother Knights to follow Bob’s lead and pitch in to secure more auction items.
