Going once… going twice… SOLD! The International Education department’s Wine and Cheese Silent Auction was a huge success and we’d like to thank everyone who came out to support us on Thursday, March 29, 2012. Thanks to everyone’s generous contributions, we’ve managed to raise a little over $6,000.
Many thanks to Matt Goldberg, our hilarious MC for the night, who kept the ball rolling and to Patrick Blaizel, the auctioneer from the Montreal Auction House who helped us end the night on a high note.
We would like to thank the SAQ once again for their generosity in providing us with the wine for the event and specialty box sets to auction off. The bread, provided by Première Moisson, and the cheese, from Henry Laurier, were a perfect complement to the wine and we can’t thank our liaison, Johanna Consentino, enough for all of her help.
