VIDEO: Putting together the 2012 Emmanuel House/Bryan House Silent Auction

A mini-helmet signed by Brian Urlacher—one of many items in the Silent Auction

We’ve been putting together the 2012 Emmanuel House/Bryan House SILENT AUCTION for a few weeks now.  Here’s a short video of the work we did a few nights ago.  We’re assembling, testing, doing inventory—and for the first time doing this in the new LaSalle St. headquarters for the Emmanuel House Community Development Corporation!

It’s still empty and needs rehab, but it’s perfect for doing all the pre-Auction work.

THANKS TO OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS!  Especially auction chair Sandy Wunderlich.

The night I took the shots for this video they were working with toys, books, food, sports equipment and memorabilia, tools, musical instruments, household products, make up, and more.  Still to come, wrestling with furniture, making displays for the vacations, tickets…and more.

Please join us.  NOVEMBER 16th, 7-9:15 pm, Community Christian Church, corner of Ogden & Rickert, Naperville.
