The Children’s School of Excellence (CSE) raised a reported $132,000+ at the auction last Saturday night, and that does not include 4 scholarships totaling $20,000 given at the event’s conclusion. Auctioneer Larry Schorno and his energetic daughter Cindy outdid themselves in this year’s auction as they were so much a part of the collective body of participants. Their love and care was visible and experienced by all !!!
Retired Thurston County Sheriff Gary Edwards made a dramatic entrance on his Harley motorbike with Auction Chair Linda Evans !!!
Yelm Community Schools’ Denise Bagwell brought her experience with the annual Dollars for Scholars and recorded the auction sales along side CSE’s Shuba Nandyal & Vivian Clermont.
Jeevan Anandasakaran is the School’s internet programmer, engineering the whole site. He volunteers all his time.
Janine Olson reportedly procured more goods than any volunteer, drove more miles, resolved more problems, and kept a cheerful outlook for months. With three children, this lady made tireless efforts at the drop of a pin. The auction would not have been a success without her!
Yvonne Lebron, CSE’s administrative assistant, kept every loophole sealed, kept all the volunteer teams supplied with material, kept a smiling face throughout chaos at every turn.
Omey Nandyal is CSE’s newest board member and the mind and man behind CSE’s growth. He has been instrumental in helping realize CSE’s ambitious operational and educational goals, with emphasis on fund raising.
The CSE board is a progressive, caring, capable, hands-on board. They are behind every action, every call, every step. They do more than any school board. They give time when there isn’t any. They do whatever it takes to keep the school in seamless operation, improve every level, and plan for future growth. Congratulations to Board President Carey Miller & all of the Board of Trustees.
Larry Schorno announced he is the auctioneer at most of the large auctions in Washington State and CSEs was the most successful in the State he has ever seen. A big congratulations goes to Chair Linda Evans and Co-Chair Roberta Brittingham for the event and in charge of the fantastic decorations and bountiful table spreads.
Everyone deserves praise for their hard work to pull off such a fine event for our community’s children!
The highlight of the evening was the $40,000 paid by Sir Robert Jones for a pair of Ramtha’s boots, donated by channeler JZ Knight.
