ZimKids quarter auction fundraiser

Once again, the indefatigable Nurse Jen arranged another fundraiser for ZimKids. Diana and I had never been to a quarter auction before nor did we have a clue what was going on in the beginning. Once explained to us, it was pretty cool. It seemed like a cross between an auction and a bingo game. Google "quarter auction" if you want a real explanation !

Other than myself and Gabs Elkaim, no one at the auction had any connection to Zimbabwe. It was truly amazing to see the generosity of the people in attendance. Mostly Jen's family and friends. However, there were a few strangers there as well.

I'm not sure what the final outcome was but whatever the amount I and the ZimKids trust are extremely grateful to all those that were there. Thank you Jen for organizing this fundraiser and thank you everyone else for your contributions.

Help someone else to help themselves.
