Purse auction raises funds for Yavapai Exceptional Industries
GFWC The Monday Club Inc., held its annual Purse Auction with all proceeds going to Yavapai Exceptional Industries (YEI) on its 45th anniversary of service to the community.
Brad Newman, executive director of YEI, was the auctioneer again this year. The members, along with their guests, filled the room to overflowing.
The purses, donated by the members, were loaded with all kinds of goodies. Some were so full that the zippers could not be closed. Cake, cookies, candy, tea, and coffee were served prior to and during the auction. The bidding started as low as $10 and quickly rose to over $50.
At the close of the auction, Brad Newman, to his surprise, was presented with a donation of $1,000 to go towards the YEI programs. The auction, not only was loads of fun, but also served a worthy cause.
