Once again, the CLASSY BAG AFFAIR was a great occasion for good times, good friends and good values! And, all to support the outstanding students of the Baja Scholarship Foundation.
Folks began arriving at 11 at Dos Lagos Restaurant, Bajamar, and enjoyed a glass of champagne (or two?) while viewing the fabulous 40 “bags” and their contents. After marking up their bid sheets, there was time to linger over the Silent Auction items and then find a table with friends; new and old.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the delicious buffet and the liberal pouring of wine with lunch.
Fund Raising Chair, Ruth Rockwell, and her side-kick, Lisa Johnston, along with help from Board Members and “friends” of the BSF, really scoured the area for new and exciting items. And, their efforts paid off.
The spirited bidding was kept going with the help of Auctioneer Doug Rye. And, while some new and unique items brought high prices, there truly was something for everyone this year.
We are thrilled to announce that the Classy Bag Affair added $17,000 plus to our bank account this year. That amounts to approximately 1/3 of our annual budget. With your generous help with sponsorships and other donations and your support of our other events throughout the year we are able to meet our obligations and promises to these fine deserving young people.
Thank you one and all! And, remember to mark your calendar for April 2016!!
