What an amazing turnout for our 26th Annual Seafood & Wild Game Dinner & Auction: Uncorked on February 8 at Saint Joseph Center in Mount Vernon!  The food was incredible, the beer and wine plentiful, the auction an uncontested success, and the company, well, you were fantastic!  We have such wonderful community support in Skagit County, and we know it is because you trust us to invest your kind donations into deserving and responsible programs and people.
 
The live auction grossed nearly $52,000, while the annual Raise the Paddle for Youth Scholarships raised an astounding $34,950!  We'll be able to give lots of scholarships to worthy graduating seniors in Skagit County this year!  The silent auction raised nearly $9000.  Ticket sales, centerpiece auctions, raffles, and other miscellaneous fundraising at the event netted us $105,000!  Can you believe it?  All of that money will go right back into our community to directly benefit youth programs and scholarships.
 
Skagit Rotary is so proud to be a part of the legacy of giving in this community.  We hope that you had a wonderful time at our auction.  Mark your calendars for next year: February 7, 2015 - you won't want to miss the 27th Annual Seafood & Wild Game Dinner & Auction!
