CETE Holiday Party/Silent Auction Benefits Mid-Ohio Foodbank

On December 12, 2018, CETE hosted their annual holiday party, gathering to celebrate the end of year holidays and each other. During this annual event, CETE staffers participate in a silent auction organized by the CETE CARE committee, where staffers bid on items donated by fellow staff members. All proceeds from the auction are donated to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

This year, rather than doubling our donation, CETE was able to triple their donation. The donation was able to be tripled through a partnership the Foodbank and Feeding America had with Bank of America this holiday season, where every dollar donated through the portal would be matched with $2. For every $1 donated, the Foodbank distributes up to $10 worth of groceries to people in our community.

The silent auction this year raised $827, which was donated through the Feeding America/Bank of America portal, tripling the donation to a grand total of $2,481. In 2017, CETE raised a similar total, which was doubled to a similar amount.
