Highlights from the Kohler PAO Auction

• Bookmarks: 1163

On May 16, the Kohler Performing Arts Organization concluded their online auction. The newly designed 4-day online auction created a flurry of new excitement and fun unlike past auctions. The event raised approximately $20,000 to be used toward future scholarships and performance tours for the band and choir students.

The successful evening is due to the tremendous support and charitable donations offered by many local corporations and individuals. Our generous sponsors will be announced in the next issue of the Kohler Villager.

A special thank you to the enthusiastic and dedicated auction committee and volunteers for donating their time and talents to create a successful and newly designed online auction! While some committees completed their task, others only got started, and still other committees never began at all due to Covid-19 and the Stay at Home orders that changed this year’s auction format.  We would like to recognize the leadership team and all of the volunteers who make this organization strong:
