Annual Benefit Auction
See you next year at the Abbington on Friday, November 10, 2017.
The 2016 ECFA Auction was held on Veteran’s Day, Friday, November 11th. ECFA recognized our veterans by requesting an honor guard to post colors. We thanked God for those who serve in the arm forces, sang patriotic songs, and provided the veterans and military personnel in attendance with a small gift to express our appreciation for their service to our country.
The event was a huge success! 220 guests engaged in spirited bidding for over 400 silent auction and 35 live auction items. Professional auctioneer and ECFA adoptive dad, Greg Parker, called a fast moving and competitive live auction featuring tickets to major sporting events, novelty items, home goods, Paulette’s homemade pies, a vacation getaway, Mrs. Kelly’s freshly baked cinnamon rolls, and many other desirable items.
ECFA’s Pregnancy Support Services Program (PSS) was featured at the auction. PSS provides women facing an unplanned pregnancy with life-affirming options and is funded entirely by donations. Greg took time out from the live auction to do a special “spot auction” to raise much needed funds for PSS.
In addition to the money raised from the silent and live auction, our guests donated $12,500 to support the PSS Program. This was on top of a $10,000 matching grant ECFA received for PSS. Once again, ECFA was blessed by the Lord’s provision through the generosity of many wonderful friends and supporters!
