Gym Becomes Chinatown for LAA Auction

Gym Becomes Chinatown for LAA Auction Livingstone Adventist Academy held its second annual Starry Night Auction to raise money for the new high school complex, which opened this spring. More than 150 of the school’s constituents, pastors, teachers and parents attended the auction, themed “Starry Night in Chinatown," held April 25. More than 100 items raised in excess of $39,000. Among the evening’s highlights were a silent auction and dinner with an Asian flavor prepared by LAA’s own chef, Kathy Stoneberg. Then came the main event, a live auction with auctioneer Gale Crosby presiding. Among the items up for bid were a weekend for six at the Inn at Spanish Head in Lincoln City, private guitar lessons by one of LAA’s music teachers, an aerial photo of the winning bidder's home, hand-painted bowls and platters decorated by the school's youngest students, and dinner and miniature golf with the Don and Barbara Livesay, Oregon Conference president and LAA principal, respectively. One generous donor put up funds for the LAA teachers to bid on a weekend at a mountain cabin near Sunriver, Ore., and a luxury box at the Portland Rose Garden arena to see a Winterhawks game. “Once again our prayers have been answered, and the generosity of those who attended the auction has been a true blessing,” said Barbara Livesay. “Our sincere thanks go out to all of those who supported this event.” Among those who donated their time and energy into making this evening a success was Pam Wheeler, parent of an LAA sophomore and auction coordinator for the second year. “We tip our hats to Pam and her crew. They put on a top-notch event,” said Jerry Magee, LAA school board chair. To learn more about the annual auction, visit www.laa.info.
