Auctioneer Michael LawrenceLe Nichoir’s first murder-mystery auction and dinner fundraiser, held at St James church hall in Hudson on April 14, was a huge success! Tickets sold out a full three weeks before the event, and over $33,000 was raised (a record high!) The funds raised included $11,605 earmarked for building a new multi-unit aviary for songbirds and insectivorous birds.

Le Nichoir thanks all those who attended, along with the sponsors and volunteers, for their generosity and enthusiasm at the event. ( event pictures)

A huge thank-you also goes out to all auction donors and sponsors, who graciously provided the gifts and services that made this event so successful.
