CDR Hosts Successful and Fun 39th Annual Bid ‘n Buy Auction
March 24, 2017 — Norge, VA — Child Development Resources (CDR) held a successful and fun auction at Jamestown High School on Sunday, March 19, 2017, raising more than $158,000 for the organization.. The 39th Annual Bid ‘n Buy Auction brought more than 500 people together to raise funds for and support the babies and toddlers of the Williamsburg community. Volunteers, supporters, sponsors, and donors enjoyed a silent and live auction, family entertainment, activities, music, a food court, a Jeep Wrangler raffle, and more.
“CDR’s annual auction has become a tradition in the Williamsburg community and every year the event demonstrates just how much our community supports the children and families we serve,” said Paul Scott, CDR’s Executive Director. “The support we received from our donors, attendees, sponsors, and volunteers was terrific, and the funds we raised will help us provide services to children in the Williamsburg, James City County, York County, or Poquoson areas who have developmental delays or disabilities or who is at risk for delay.”
Highlights of the afternoon included a testimonial of CDR’s services by Anya Griffith, who shared her family’s story about the arrival of little Elle, now 2-1/2 years old, a full seventeen weeks early. Elle and her parents have tackled and continue to face many challenges in this little one’s development, but after working with CDR therapists for a little over a year, she has made enormous strides and is now walking and running.
Another highlight of the event was the drawing of a beautiful red 2017 Jeep Wrangler, which was donated by David Julien, owner of Williamsburg Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Kia. The winning raffle ticket was held by Williamsburg resident Marion Sullivan.
