Thank you to everyone who came out to the Silent Auction.  It was a wonderful evening, bringing needed awareness to the Gulf and the oil that is still out there,. Great people, amazing imagery, fantastic auction items, delicious food, and a welcoming venue made this a big success. It couldn’t have happened without the help of so many, and our gratitude goes out to you all.
