The Blarney Stone did its magic! Our Saturday night event was a lively and festive occasion with an excellent mix of members of the congregation and invited guests, along with plenty of good food, drinks and music.
Happy guests spent $5,183 on auction items, $315 on admission and raffle tickets and $112 on beer and wine for a total haul of more than $5,600! In addition, the contributions of UUWF, Nancy Granovsky, Sue Bloomfield, Karen Bachman and Eleanor Ford covered the cost of the Irish stew and soda bread that was catered by Epicures.
Again, thank you to all who donated auction items and food and drinks. Thank you to all who came and bid and helped make it such a fun party. And special thanks to Ken Appelt and John Ivy for welcoming guests with their lively Irish tunes.
Sharon Boston was the happy winner of the Blarney Stone, and she has donated it to the church so it can continue to work its magic as we prepare for our new home.
