Thanks so much!
The 2017 Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale Online Auction was a great success. Thank you all for taking the time to support Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale Online Auction and Mennonite Central Committee. Congratulations to everyone who:
- --placed a winning bid
- --generously donated an item for auction
- --invited family and friends to bid for MCC.
Bids went record high after seeing this note from MCC:
“Our disaster response fund is stretched thin as we provide relief around the world. We can’t respond without your help.”
The Middle Eastern Dinner sold for a record breaking $4,200 and 200 out of 211 items sold. 197 people cast 1,387 bids. We will send about $28,000 on to MCC, $3,000 more than last year. You all care!
We sold some consignment items from groups that gather signatures and posters and make them available to nonprofits. We now realize some people didn't know that only part of their bid on those items went to MCC. We'll make that more clear next year.
Wow! Those last auction minutes are so exciting! Thanks for taking part!
Donate directly to MCC:
