Thanks to everyone who contributed to the auction. Your donations were wonderful, earning us a little more than $6000. We’ll donate $5,000 to scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year, and offer another $1,000 to next year’s poster winners. We also appreciate the University gift baskets, bags, and treats that increase the auction proceeds, and the special talents of all the artists who contributed personal works. The CDF is all about honoring achievement and awarding excellence of current and future professionals. Every gift, every bid, and every purchase is reworked to benefit students. And, of course, Verbalina’s 15-year retirement and ClaraTee’s debut added special moments to the auction excitement (see their conversation recorded below)!
