The online auction proceeds, as well as the live auction proceeds, will go 25% to the local public schools; 25% to the free educational programs run by the Foundation; and 50% to construct the bathrooms at the Educational Center located behind the Kinder. Now we have enough funds to start the construction of the long awaited bathrooms!
