Kendra had gotten many items donated to sell...the people were there...and it was time!
Kendra had asked Lucy if she wanted to help her sell some stuff. Lucy's response was a quick head nod and an outstretched hand...and they were off!
(Lucy getting her introduction!)
Lucy assumed her position at the gavel and Kendra had on her mic....
It was awesome! (how many times can 1 person use the words awesome and amazing)
One amazing story from the day:
The Hummel. I hope I'm spelling that correctly. This Hummel was the 2nd or 3rd Hummel to be auctioned off today. After the item was won by it's bidder ($40 or $50)...they said "put it back in...sell it again...I'll pay for it but put it ...back up for auction and get money for it twice!" So Kendra auctioned it a second time....bringing an additional $30 or $40 for it the second time...the winning bidder said "put it back in.....sell it again"....and so it went....8 times the item "sold" and was put back in to sell for Lucy....it brought a total of $322.50. And the last time it sold....Kendra bought it herself so that Lucy would have it forever. Now tell me people....is that awe-inspiring or what? What precious people God has put in our path to help raise money for Lucy. Speechless I tell you!
I love that all of Kendra's auction staff were wearing their Lucy shirts!!! What a blessing these people have been to our Lucy!
When it was all said and done....Kendra had raised (between sales and donations) over $3,000 for Lucy's surgery!
Kendra....we are forever grateful to you for loving our yougen and making such a huge impact on her life! We love you!
