It was a festive night of auctions and raffles to help the children and programs at the Thea Bowman House in Utica.
The Rotary Club of Utica hosted its second annual “Not So Silent Night” fundraiser in December, raising $3,100.
Over fifty auction items including home goods, local restaurant certificates, concert/Broadway show tickets to The Stanley Theatre, local specialty baskets and more all went to the highest bidders.
The Rotary Club also had an ongoing raffle which highlighted area attractions and events for every season, including a golf package, horseback riding and a night out to enjoy a Comets or UFC game at the Adirondack Bank Center along with dinner prior to the game.
The event was chaired by Rotarian Brett Shippee with assistance from Club President Stephen Turnbull.
