On Friday, May 18th, the Oxford PTO held its first "Family Night at the Auction." The event was a huge success, not just in a monetary value, but by the turnout and excitement in the air. When children won a bid, the excitement on their faces was incredible.
I'd like to give a very big thank you from myself and the Oxford PTO to everyone who helped out. We had many volunteers; Sharon Shaw, Tricia and Joe Hines, April Klicsu, Tom Riddle, Ann Gamauf, Jennifer Kozek, Lisa Bawlick and the Oxford Youth Football Organization, many bakers who dropped off baked goods, and several others who stepped in to help where needed. We had great auctioneers in Dave and Debbie Kelly, and Danny Magic, who kept approximately 50-plus kids entertained. All of you had a big hand in this event, and we hope to see you again next year.
We had many business that donated items and a few last minute items that did not make it into our program. We'd like to thank:
- Radley Manzo
- The Oxford Resident Trooper's Office - Sgt. Daniel Semosky
- Burns & Company, LLC - Mary Ellen Macedonia
- Flavor Catering - Jamie Curtis
- Outdoor Movies and Gaming(OMG) -Keith Corcoran
- Tidmarsh's Bakery / Ansonia
On a final note, this event would not have been possible without the help, commitment and dedication was over the last four months by these wonderful ladies: Kim Swanat, Jenn Manzo, Carmen Riddle, Jenn Brown, Jodi Fletter, Kellyanne Barberio and Therese Kennett. Thank you for making this happen and making it a great, fun event for everyone!
