CHS booster club auction a smashing success

This year's auction was my first, and probably won't be my last. Hundreds of CHS parents and supporters turned out to empty their wallets for our extracurricular programs. Susan Rivera-Lee not only organized the event, but provided an incredible donation: a twelve-course meal for up to 10 people to celebrate next year's Chinese New Year in Seattle's International District, put up for auction in honor of CHS Debate.

Mike Glenn of St. Peter's hospital won a fierce bidding war with crosstown rival Capital Medical Center to nab the dinner deal, but in the end, students were the biggest winners.

Thanks to Susan, Mike, and all the Capital students, parents, and friends who came and gave so generously.
