HARTFORD - The Salvation Army's Greater Hartford Women's Auxiliary Spring Luncheon and Auction was held once again at the breathtaking Pond House in Elizabeth Park in West Hartford on Thursday, May 10, 2012. With many hard-working members of the Women's Auxiliary and their guests in attendance and the talents of WVIT-TV's (NBC 30) Anchor Brad Drazen serving as the auctioneer, the event was another huge and exhilarating accomplishment!

Guests arrived early to view the many wonderful offerings, place bids on numerous silent auction items, peruse various jewelry and more for sale at very affordable prices, and see in advance what the live-auction would include. The program began with a heartfelt welcome from Captain Christine Glasco, The Salvation Army's Liaision Officer for the Greater Hartford Women's Auxiliary, followed by an always-inspiring grace by Major Eunice Champlin, Director of Women's Ministries for The Salvation Army's Southern New England Division. Then, lunch was served!

After a magnificent lunch, Sandra Bobowski, President of the Greater Hartford Women's Auxiliary, presented over $6,000 raised last year in the form of grants to various Greater Harford programs. Through this generosity, more children will attend camp, Marshall House will get a new freezer, The Right Place will get cameras for their classrooms, and much more. Then, everyone got involved in some seriously competitive bidding. Brad, a strong supporter of the work of the Women's Auxiliary, led the live-auction bidding and kept the program moving at a quick and exciting pace. All funds raised will be awarded to programs offered by The Salvation Army in Greater Hartford next year.

In reflecting on the event, Captain Glasco said, "The Women's Auxiliary ladies are an outstanding group that loves the mission and work of The Salvation Army. They work hard and raise funds every year to provide grants that help our various ministries and programs in Greater Hartford. We are deeply grateful to these women for their support of and their love for The Salvation Army."

The Salvation Army's Greater Hartford Women's Auxiliary is a volunteer arm of the work and ministry of The Salvation Army. Through the support of its dedicated membership, practical assistance is given to the Army's programs through fundraising, as well as through hands-on service.
