TOPEKA -- Let the touring begin!
ERC Child Care Aware, which had been Everywoman's Resource Center, is welcoming fans to tour the home, in the 32nd annual event. Patrons and sponsors were treated to cocktails and dinner at the Holidome, with a chance to enter bids on two tables of silent auction items.
The live auction, hosted by 13's Ralph Hipp, included a Jayhawks autographed basketball, and a gourmet cooking experience for eight (both items sold for nearly $600, all helping the agency.) Among the other items were two private flight trips, artwork, jewelry, an HD television set, and a portrait photography package.
Fans were invited to depart the Holidome and go straight to the home at 3162 Shadow Lane. It was recently purchased by Josh and Kimberly Svaty. Treats and gourmet coffees were served to the late night visitors. Everyone is welcome to stop by and visit the home through May 13th in the Westboro neighborhood, not far from 19th and Gage.
