The Foundation provides gifts and clothing to children of students at the college, according to Walstrum.
Held at the home of Mo and Fereshteh Sarram, the chocolate auction raised about $3,500 this year. About 25 members and friends attended the affair. Others in the photo are (left to right) Tanya and Walt Richardson, Walstrum, Fereshtah Sarram and Gwen Young.
