    Just amazing how much money these guys raise. The Napa Valley Auction should be proud of all the good work they are doing. I don’t think many of the organizations in there area could go on without them. Bravo.

    Wow, that’s one heck of an auction. Around here, if an auction raises more than $100K it’s a big success. Congrats to the organizers!
