By Richard Burger
An enthusiastic and generous crowd filled McConnell Hall Nov. 13, to give a big boost to the fundraising efforts of the Yakima Valley Fair and Rodeo Foundation.
The event featured silent and live auctions, and a catered dinner to entice attendees to open their checkbooks, and from early reports, it was a very successful endeavor.
Of particular note were the "Raise the Paddle" segment in the middle of the live auction, which raised $9,000, and a special presentation from Randy Hecker, General Manager of the J.M. Smucker Co. Grandview plant, who handed over a check for $5,000 to foundation president Martina Castle-Charvet at the end of the evening.
