Shorewood Booster Auction raises money

  • Thursday, March 27, 2008 3:16pm

The Shorewood Booster Auction, “A Night in Paris,” was on March 8, and booster supporters pulled out their wallets to support the high school, raising over $100,000.

Bidders mingled in the three silent auction rooms while sipping fine wines.

Mimes provided comic relief. After the silent auction rooms closed, diners had a meal of Chicken Cordon Bleu while bidding on a live auction. Locals bid on a car wash and detailing offered by principal Bill Dunbar, diamond jewelry, a mellow golden retriever puppy and other items.

Proceeds to go support Shorewood High School classrooms and activities.
