223 people attended Lake Forest Park Rotary’s dinner auction earlier this month to party like Jay and Daisy, and support the club’s many service projects.

When all the credit cards were run, over $90,000 was raised to help provide local emergency housing, community nutrition, free medical care, college scholarships, and international health, education and economic development programs.

This was by far the largest amount raised from this annual event.

Thanks to the wonderful individuals and businesses who donated amazing items for the silent and live auctions.

Thanks to all our guests, including those from other area Rotary clubs.

The local constabulary was there in case things got out of hand.
