The doors opened at 6:00 p.m.; I got there about 6:10 to find my friend C waiting in anticipation. "Have you seen it? Have you seen it?" she practically shouted at me. It turns out that this is what she meant:
Apparently it was the second piece sold -- less than 10 minutes after the doors opened!! Whoa! A fast $200 raised for the Endowment fund! I'm still reeling from the surprise. :-)
By the time I left at 7:40 p.m. (the event was closing at 8 p.m.), over a dozen pieces (almost 25% of the exhibit) had sold. The rest, including my daughter's piece, "Spilling Towards" will be in the Silent Auction which begins tomorrow and runs through September 29 at 4 p.m.
