GOOD SHEPHERD LUTHERAN SCHOOL'S 14th ANNUAL BENEFIT AUCTION COMMITTEE is pleased to finally present our totals for this year's ONLINE auction. Our committee met on Sunday, August 16 to prepare Thank You notes for mailing, but the simple words, “THANK YOU”, seem almost inadequate to express our gratitude to all of our supporters who made this very unique year a resounding success.
Thanks to all who supported our efforts, the NET AMOUNT RAISED FOR GSLS was incredible: $87,714.32! The Building Fund will receive $49,844.32 of this amount which is almost 5 mortgage payments. Fund-An-Item will receive $37,870.00—the new Science Curriculum can be purchased! Praise be to God! THANK YOU once again to all of you who allowed us to keep your ticket purchases, donated, sponsored, and prayed for the school. God provided as He always does; He is Good—all the time! And, we are humbled and amazed and grateful beyond words. The total raised for the school from the past 13 Auctions is an astounding $1,162,987.88!
And now, we will enter “extra innings”! Please SAVE THE DATE for our 15th Annual Benefit Auction which will be held—God willing—on Saturday, March 20, 2021, at the Par-A-Dice Hotel Ballroom. We will hopefully enjoy a sports-themed evening as we “Take Ewe Out to the Ball Game!"
