Recap: 20th Annual Auction

Last Saturday was Washington Bikes’s 20th annual fundraising auction—and what a fundraiser it was!  Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and the 285 friends of bicycling in attendance, we raised over $95,000 that evening.  Eric Mamroth and Chris Cameron returned as our auctioneer and master of ceremonies respectively.  Here’s a photo recap of the festivities:

Guests browsed the silent auction tables for choice items.

Volunteers roamed the room selling Split the Pot raffle tickets.

These delectable desserts raised over $8000.

Bidding was lively and plentiful all evening.

The “wizards” entered auction data all evening.

The auction is a huge volunteer effort and we are grateful to the 70+ volunteers who help make this event a success.  These folks helped us with everything from data entry, packing and event set-up to registration, closing, check out, and tear down.  Thanks, guys!

We also want to thank and recognize this year’s auction sponsors:

John Duggan, Cycling Attorney

Seattle Children’s Hospital
