This past Sunday was the day for the 9th annual Auction Of Hope to benefit the Childhood Leukemia Foundation.

I was honored once again to be the emcee for this event, which is a true celebration of some great kids and families right here in our area, and a wonderful organization dedicated to helping them.

The vent was held once again at the Woodlake Country Club in Lakewood and, as usual, the place was packed with very generous people having a great brunch and helping this amazing cause.

This year there were over 250 gift baskets at the auction and lots of people went home with their arms full of great prizes, so a big thank you to all the local businesses who were so generous to participate.

There are so many ways the Childhood Leukemia Foundation helps the children and you can learn about them and how you can help by visiting the Childhood Leukemia Foundation website.

And a big thank you to everyone who came out to this Auction of Hope and were so generous with their time and money. You guys are awesome!
