Thanks to everyone who came out on a very rainy Sunday to help support the Mill River Odyssey of the Mind Team during our Silent Auction and Dessert Party. It was exhausting to prepare for it and yesterday was set up and dessert baking, today was more dessert baking and running the event. Together, the entire team and their families put in countless ( and I do mean countless) hours of time, energy and effort into putting together what we were counting on to be our largest fundraiser.

While people trickled in and out during the two hour event, we weren’t feeling very optimistic. There weren’t a lot of people, and there didn’t seem to be a lot of bidding, despite the really great items we were able to secure (Disney Park Hopper passes, Aerogarden, Keurig Coffee Makers, etc.)

If anyone out there is interested, we have a pair of ski passes to Wachusett Mountain and Saddleback Mountain that remained unbid upon. The Odyssey Team would love to see them go to a good home in exchange for some support for the team (in the way of good old fashioned cash).

When it was all said and done, and we were exhausted, it seemed to all work itself out. Magically, somehow, we wound up making enough money to cover the majority of the team’s expenses and that makes up for all the hard, hard work everyone put in.

Good job ladies (and gentlemen). Did we decide on when we’re doing that night out celebrating?
