The Pilot Club of West Point held a dessert/white elephant auction after the conclusion of the business meeting Tuesday night in the dining room of the Henry Clay Retirement Center in West Point.
“This is always a fun way to raise a little money in – house,” Sandra Cox, member of the fundraising committee, said. “People bring either a dessert or a decorative or household item for the members to bid on. Sometimes the bidding gets a little heated, but everyone laughs a lot and has a good time.”
Mary Ann Shows, a member of the fundraising committee, said she walks around the room with desserts ranging from homemade banana pudding, chocolate delight, a Jubilations Cheesecake to no – bake cookies, to tempt Pilots into bidding on the goodies. Shows said it was all in fun and she enjoyed playing auctioneer during the event.
“The item bringing in the highest bid was a carved wooden decorative Christmas tree,” Michele Estes, a Pilot Club director, said. “The bidding for it got up to $50. There is always one thing that everyone would like to have and the bidding war begins. It’s a nice way to make money for club projects and no one ever gets their feelings hurt, it’s just a lot of fun.”
