LAKEWOOD – Families in Business held their annual Chocolate Auction December 9th at the home of Mo and Fereshteh Sarram. More than 20 Lakewood residents attended to raise money for the Clover Park Technical College’s Holiday House. Dr. Lonnie Howard, President of Clover Park Technical College attended along with a student who was a beneficiary of the program. After enjoying a social appetizer period, a vigorous auction over the scrumptious desserts ensued. By the time the dust (or powdered sugar) settled, more than $3,000 was raised to go towards the Holiday House event.
