Thank you to everyone who came out in support of the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks at the 47th annual HIPOW event. We auctioned everything from cars and a snowmachine to bikes, dinners with local celebrities, crime buster birthday parties and furniture. Our volunteers deserve a big pat on the back. They logged hundreds of hours from set up to break down.
HIPOW raised about $625,000 to support the schools. About a third of that total was raised during Saturday’s Fund-the-Vision.
A survey sent out after the event produced interesting results. The most popular topic was online bidding. We’re not happy to see the negative comments, but plan to have more bidding buddies next year to assist those having trouble with electronic bidding.
