26th Annual Sold on Kids Auction

Sweetser Sold on Kids Auction Raises $116,000

The 26th Annual Sweetser Sold on Kids Auction & Dinner was a great success. The event was held on April 20th at the South Portland Marriott attended by more than 400 supporters.

Auctioneer Bill Zafirson and Emcee Lee Goldberg (NEWS CENTER Maine Now co-host), kept the audience entertained all night long. Highlights of the evening included the “Name that Tune” contest, which tied into the auction theme “Your Help is Their Hope” and a special Fund the Need activity, which raised nearly $11,000 to benefit Sweetser’s residential program activities. Other highlights included the Day’s Jewelers “Heads & Tails” diamond pendant necklace give-a-way won by Wendy Anders, and the Clark Insurance 50/50 raffle won by Dave Cook, who generously donated the proceeds back to Sweetser.

We are looking forward to another great event in the spring of 2019 and hope you will join us!
