Fun evening for a worthy cause
ALGONA — Early in the live auction a bidding war surfaced for a simple item like a Rock star parking spot that included VIP parking and a personalized sign. The more than 400 people sitting at the tables at the Friedmann Auditorium cheered them on.
When finished, two people bid $10,000 each to have the Rock star parking spot.
That set the tone for the evening during this year’s Gala, “The Big Apple: Start Spreading the News.” When the evening was over an estimated $407,000 was raised. That is the best year on record.
Over the course of 29 years, Bishop Garrigan’s Gala has raised more than $6.5 million to help children in the school.
