SGM Auction Thank You and Some Coming Events

A HUGE thank you to Holly from Caring for Carleigh for the amazing auction recently held to benefit Sufficient Grace! We love you, Holly and you’re amazing!!

I borrowed the Thank You Note below from our sweet Holly-girl:

The SGM online auction to benefit Sufficient Grace Ministries was a great success again this year. The amount raised through the winning bids was $2,115, which slightly surprised last year’s amount. Of course, the actual amount Sufficient Grace will end up receiving will be slightly less just like last year too considering some bids will not be fulfilled plus paypal fees but I am still extremely happy with how it turned out.

I’m still in the process of getting the last of the money collected and items sent out. It’s definitely been a lot of work but it was much easier this year I think compared to last year to keep track of everything.

I want to thank every person, business, and organization that donated to the auction. Without all of your donations the auction would not have been as successful as it was. Thank you for helping Sufficient Grace Ministries to continue to reach out to grieving women and families!
