Silent Auctions were coordinated by Colleen Walker. Items were placed on display outside the sales room around noon-1 pm and you could bid on items until 5-6 pm. Sheets were taken up at end of auction and winners took the winning sheet and item to pay NAME at a sales table.
They had a silent auction every day of the houseparty Thu-Sa.
Silent auctions raised over $6000 for NAME.

Houseparty Helpers were coordinated by Lesia Lennex.
Houseparty Helpers raised over $4000 for NAME.
Winners were announced at the Saturday night banquet.
Carolyn Eiche seemed to be the big winner of the night winning the Debbie Young Town Square kits and $300 to spend at the Quarter Connection.
Last year's big winner Kim Woods (who won 14 houseparty helpers in Charlotte) came home with a paltry 3 helpers this year.
Two of my roommies won 3 helpers, Becky Niethammer 2 and Mary Johnson 1.Becky won $150 at Joanne Roberts's sales table and the half scale swap items. Not sure the latter was a big win---Becky  said she received 10 HS items in the swap (25 was what people in 1" and QS received, 2 were donations to the helpers) but the HS Helpers contained only 6 items and they were all items she had received already.
