KANDU recently wrapped up We Can’t Party at The Pitts, an online alternative to the popular fundraising event Party at The Pitts, hosted annually for the past 10 years on Diane Hendricks’ beautiful property.
Participants or “guests” had the opportunity to purchase “Imagine the Day” or “Envison the Night” tickets and receive certificates for local restaurants and businesses, as well as the opportunity to participate in an exclusive online auction, held on July 30th.
A new endeavor for both KANDU and Beloit Auction, the online auction featured live commentary between David (the auctioneer) and Liz (KANDU Development Manager), announcing bids in real time and encouraging friendly competition between bidders. Some first time participants couldn’t resist jumping in on the bidding wars due to all the excitement!
A very special thank you to Diane Hendricks for making this event possible in spite of current circumstances, along with Wisconsin Fundraiser and Beloit Auction for donating their services including all of the behind the scenes work in hosting the online auction. Thank you to Kerry for sponsoring the gift certificates, as well as Drywater Productions for putting together yet another amazing video illustrating our mission. Thank you to all of our generous sponsors, donors, auction donors and event participants. Your support makes a vital difference during this challenging time and we genuinely appreciate your choice in contributing to our event.
