The 2018 Auction raised funds to help the city of Huntington Woods purchase and install an emergency generator at one of our public buildings. The need for the emergency generator system became clear in the winter of 2017 when the City of Huntington Woods experienced wide-spread power outages for many days in some parts of our community. The City was able to open the Gilham Recreation Center as a warming center to assist those residents who were unable to stay in their homes, but this was only possible because the Rec Center had power. Had the power outage been more severe, the City would not have had the ability to house residents temporarily in a warm, safe space.
In addition to being a warming/cooling station for residents, the building with the emergency generator will be able to serve as an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Having a proper EOC for the city would place Huntington Woods as a leader among the local communities when it comes to disaster and emergency response, and give our first responders the resources to assist the residents of our City in the event of an emergency. As experts in the field of emergency preparation say, it's never a question of if a disaster is going to occur, it's a question of when it will.
For the past 35 years. the HWMC Service Auction has raised funds to support many significant projects with our community. The Service Auction is a fundraising event where goods and personal and professional services donated by community merchants, artists, residents and members are auctioned.
Attendance at the Auction is for adults only. Tickets for the event are $25 per person, and all refreshments and food are complimentary, thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors.
And here it is — the 36th Annual Service auction, held Saturday, March 25, 2017. Watch it all set-up, being held and cleaned up!
2017 was a huge success, let's all make the 2018 event equally successful!
