This past Thursday I participated in the third annual Restore & After Silent Auction Event. It is such a great charity event to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. For the past two years my friend Eric Wilkerson has done an excellent job at organizing this event. He has asked me again to take pictures at Restore and After. I love volunteering my services because it is such a fun event. With a live band, plenty of people, food, drinks and pieces to bid on, this year was no exception! Each year, it gets bigger and better than the last. Local artists and businesses take pieces and redo them. They are then brought to this event, "Restore and After" to be auctioned off to raise money to help build homes for those who can't afford to do so themselves. This year there were so many more businesses involved and a lot more restored pieces to auction on - pieces such as couches, dressers, chairs and even dog houses!
Last year the hot ticket items were four dog houses that local artists had painted and redone. There was a bidding war between several of us for the houses.
