|The Great Goose Egg
blew out our previous records,
was eggstremely successful,
and eggceeded all our wildest eggspeggtations!
We raised over $21,500 in support of Open Fields!
On May 13, 2006, we auctioned off 106 eggs and an illustrated story, donated by artists, authors, illustrators, and others.
We raised over $21,500 for the support of Open Fields School. $15,020 came from bidders at the auction; $2,930 from bidders on the phone (thanks to Unicel); and the rest came from absentee bids left at the auction or submitted via our website.
A price list is available, if youre interested in seeing what your favorite egg brought at auction.
Thanks to all our wonderful artists, enthusiastic bidders, generous sponsors, and to our inimitable auctioneer, Dean Whitlock.
Well be doing this all again in 2008!
