NORWICH – More than 150 community leaders from area nonprofits and businesses alike attended one of the largest annual fundraisers in support of Hospice & Palliative Care of Chenango County, Thursday evening.
The annual benefit dinner saw marked success, according to the nonprofit's Development & Outreach Coordinator Kendall Drexler.
“Attendance at this year's dinner was the best we have seen in a number of years, as an organization we're very thankful to all who took the time to participate.”
Not your average “benefit dinner,” the event implemented a variety of creative unique tactics to generate more cash for the cause. A cocktail-hour silent auction was accompanied by table side live auction action complete with well-versed local auctioneer Jerry LeClair – who clearly knew how to work bidders against one another.
