Thanks for helping our dessert auction

Love Inc., Juneau would like to thank everyone who helped to make our second annual dessert auction fundraiser such a great success. On the evening of Dec. 8, a sweet spirit was in the air at Auke Bay Bible Church. Desserts were served, songs of Christmas joy were sung and an evening of fellowship and fun were shared by all. More than 100 silent and live auction items were donated and purchased. The proceeds of the event far exceeded expectations and will greatly benefit the operations of Love Inc., Juneau. Thanks are extended to all those who contributed their time, auction items, musical talents and finances. Your generosity shows how you value the work of Love Inc., in serving the community.
