Hi Guys, The Watching For the cure auctions are finally over. I want to thank all of you for your kind support and for all the help in doing this and getting the word out there. We were truly blown away by all the support this project has had.
It has been almost a year since we first started this project. During that time, we received and incredible number of donations of watches, parts, money, time, and technical advice from all across the globe. A huge thanks to all who have supported this endeavor, non of this could have been possible without you!
Now for the numbers. As of the close of the final auction, last Thursday at noon, the combined total of all moneys raised was US$2,960. This is the combined total of all auction proceeds, plus monetary donations, minus construction expenses. Mike (Samanator) was kind enough to donate a final amount to round off the final donation, and as of Monday morning a final donation in the amount of US$3,000 was sent to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in the Names of Watchuseek, SCWF, AWF & PMWF. In addition Mike has gotten the company he work for (Citrix Systems) to add an additional US$1,000 in matching donation funds. This the final combined total Watching for the Cure donation to a grand total of US$4,000!!!
Thanks to all for your kind donations, help and overall generosity. This project was a lot of work and a labor of love, and it truly reflects the spirit of our community. Thanks everyone You've been great!
