PNA auction raises more than $100,000 for community programs

May 9th, 2013 · Comments

Last Saturday night was “Derby Day” at the Phinney Neighborhood Association, as its annual auction raised more than $105,000 for its programs, including $22,000 for the PNA Hot Meal Program and Greenwood Senior Center during the Raise the Paddle portion of the live auction.

Bow ties and big hats were everywhere.


Amelia Serafin (dressed as a jockey) and her mother, Laurie (wearing a gorgeous hat with a long peacock feather that required a decent amount of clearance from passersby), sold raffle tickets for the Case ‘O Cash ($1,000).


The Case ‘O Cash was won by Jack Herndon (dressed as a horse), who immediately donated it back to the PNA. (Below is Jack and Bill Fenimore, the PNA’s Director of Facilities.)


Once again, the Defenders of Greenwood donated dinner for four at Station 21, which sparked a frenzy of bidding.
