So we hosted our first auction fundraiser for juvenile diabetes at the house on Saturday. Sorry, I didn't even take one photo. Shameful. Too busy running around, filling mimosas, etc.
One of our contributions to the auction was an old 1960s-ish child's school desk. The old desk had been collecting dust in our basement for years. Finally an opportunity to do something with it. I pulled hundreds of pounds of boxes off of it. Walked through layers and layers of cobwebs. Came very close to killing myself lugging the extremely heavy desk up the basement stairs ...
only to have my son bid for it and win it for 8 bucks.
Unfortunately, no one had the balls to outbid the kid with diabetes at a diabetes fundraiser. Cowards! Even after our auctioneer (my friend Mike) embellished the item, declaring it a desk used on the set of Little House on the Prairie.
Great day though. It was a small invite-only gathering of friends and family yet we still raised about $800 for JDRF.
And I bought this awesome desk!
