The results are in!!

So, remember that Christmas tree I posted about not long ago? The one with the elk on it? At work, we put it together for the "Trees for Charity" fund raiser, trying to get as much out of it as we could during the auction. I didn't actually go to the auction, but found out later that night...our tree raised $4,900 dollars! It was second only to the tree that won the peoples choice award, and that tree brought in $5,000, only $100 dollars more!  It's so exciting for us- and I'm sure for the family we are raising money for!
Don't ever doubt that elk on a Christmas tree will sell to the highest bidder!

That is so cool Stephanie! It really is a beautiful tree. Would have looked so good in the cabin :( I still don't have mine up yet. What is my problem?

That trumps any tree I could ever put together. It is beautiful. I stoked for that family.
