The 3rd annual WISH UPON THE MOON fundraiser was held Saturday, December 2, 2017 at Crescent Moon Cafe in Hickory, NC. Over 60 businesses and individuals donated items for the silent auction where over 50 baskets were auctioned raising $14,000. Local craft brewers donated an exciting line up of craft beverages with 100% of the profits donated to the event.
This was the inaugural year of the Community Basket Challenge. Individuals were challenged to form a team of co-workers or friends and create a themed basket for the auction. The basket that brought in the highest bid would receive a $100 gift card to Crescent Moon, along with a trophy and bragging rights. We were overwhelmed with the response and received so many great baskets that it was decided to award 2-$100 gift cards to the baskets that brought in the highest bids.
We would like to sincerely thank Brian Thompson from Crescent Moon Cafe for hosting our event these last 3 years. Thank you to the local brewers for their donations of kegs, thank you to the local businesses who believed in us enough to donate merchandise, thank you to all of the community basket participants and thank you to the wonderful people who came out to support this event. We are overwhelmed by your generosity!
