On Sunday, 27 October, we held an auction at the Hotel Park Hyatt to raise money to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
I extend my heartiest gratitude and admiration to our two co-chairs, Rolf Frick & Ellen Frick-Delman, who, from the beginning, when this was just a mere idea in April, took the lead and brought together a team to enable us to have this gorgeous event of which the ACZ is very proud.
When Rolf & Ellen reported that Michèle Sandoz would be our auctioneer, from Christie's, we all knew we were under good leadership.
Many hours have been dedicated by volunteers since April. I will first name four people who really put in more hours than I care to imagine and without whose contribution we would not have had our Auction:
Jeanette Bider -- James Macsay -- Joanne Spörri -- and Monique Trümpy
This is alphabetical, btw...I really cannot do them justice for their enthusiasm and contribution.
In addition, we had the contribution and dedication of twelve other volunteers:
Jerry, Tania, Sunita, Cloudia, Barbara, Andrea, Jim & Susanne, Mike & Betsy, Cate, and Tom
We had a lot of fun organizing this event. And we are all very grateful for the many sponsors and donors.
I hope our guests enjoyed themselves and I look forward to the next time we will spend with them.
On a final note, thank you, Fiona Morrison, for your daily efforts to fulfill the mission of Make-A-Wish Foundation; we were happy to raise money for your kids on 27 October.
