TVFF 2014 Banquet/Auction
Our annual banquet/auction was held on Friday, November 7th in the Faith Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall. The annual Banquet/Auction is a special time for our membership to gather together and share an evening of good food, some fun and fellowship. This event, through the auction and raffle activities, provides the primary source of funds for our club.
This year’s event entertained ~45-50 members, family and friends. The BBQ meal of pork, beef and chicken with multiple sides was perfect ! And thanks to all who supplied the desserts to finish off this wonderful meal. Following the meal a few announcements were made including the presentation of the 2014 Johnny Chamness award which went to our club Treasurer, Sean Dempsey. With this completed, the auction began led by our auctioneer, Mr. Daniel Culp of Fowler Auctions. Numerous auction items were available though membership donations with some additional donations coming from The Golden Rule Fly Shop and Wishes & Fishes Fly Shop. At the end of the auction, numerous items were distributed to the attendees via the raffle.
The club benefitted this year with an income of ~$2000 from the sales of raffle and meal tickets along with the income from the auction. Our costs for this event were ~$700 netting the club a profit of ~$1300.
TVFF wants to thank those within the membership who contributed their time and energies in organizing and setting up this year’s Banquet/Auction. Kudos to Larry Hice, our Activates Director, for overseeing this successful event. Photos follow :
