According to a post this morning on the BTA Blog, the 2008 Alice Awards and Auction event brought in $150,000 for the Portland-based non-profit:

“During dinner, bidders raised their paddles in the live auction for a trip to France, a private dinner party, fancy bikes, and more. After screening a short film advocating for safer streets, the whole audience was invited to donate toward the cause, and guests pledged over $34,000!

Combined, the live and silent auctions, ticket sales, and restaurant raffle raised a total of $150,000.”

    Congrats ladies for putting on another successful event.

    It was as fun as past Alice events…and very smoothly managed for its size…I have seen how other groups do it to…yours is a model nationally!

    I remember back years ago when it was a much smaller room…
