The Live and Silent auctions raised over $100,000 alone. To- tals are still being tallied for ex- penses, but early estimates show that over $120,000 was raised for equipment for the St. Joseph's Women's Clinic and the St. Joseph's Medical Clinic. "It was so exciting," said Jodi Bosch, Foundation director at St. Joseph's Hospital. "There was a great dynamic between bidders, and everyone was in a fun mood. Brad Fong helped out with the calling and he revved up the bid- ding with other callers, our auc- tioneer, Larry Schnell, and our emcee Bob Karn." Tickets were sold-out and many of the guests dressed in the old west theme. Ray Veverka and his staff at the Elks provided a deli- cious dinner that fit in perfectly. Social Hour entertainment was provided by the "Dusty Hat Trio" and ."Betty Does" finished the evening. "We were stunned by, the gen- erosity of our community," shared Brent Hanson, assistant director at St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation. " " V This year se eral donors called in and offered items rather than being sought out, which demon- strates the positive feeling the community has for the hospital. Businesses and individuals gave great auction items and our cash sponsorship reached a new level. We're deeply grateful for their support." The Charity Ball committee and Foundation Board members pro- vided entertaining old west fihn clips featuring "Calamity Jodi," and "The Gamblers," as well as a silent movie. "The movie out-takes were a fa- vorite," laughed Amber Kuntz, one of the evening's guests. "It all went together so well the night was over before we knew it. You can tell they work hard to make this a special event for the guests- even the auction was fun."

We convinced him to let us auction it off as the last item. While we were auction- ing it, our tally takerpointed out that we were about $4000 from having raised $100,000. The whole room was so excited! Kelly Armstrong of Reichert Arm- strong and Quentin Kitzan from Big K Industries had been bidding on it, and it was at about $1200 at that point. Larry (the auctioneer) asked if they'd go to $4000. Quentin said "Let's split it," and Kelly said, "Sure, but you're keeping the buckle!"
