More than 150 people showed up to the Highliner Plaza Hotel for the auction in November.
Desserts, gift cards, local merchandise and services donated by community members and businesses were among the prizes to be won along with $2,000 of cash prizes.
A fashion show was also held showcasing clothing from LeBlanc Boutique where one outfit was auctioned off.
