Friends and family of Michelle Barnes, who recently received a kidney transplant, planned an auction to assist with Michelle's medical expenses. Everyone had a great time, and the event was a huge success!
Miss Minnesota not only sold tickets, but also attended the event to lend her support. Some of the big ticket auction items included an iPad2 and a diamond necklace, which Mrs. Minnesota wore during the event. Even some of the Vikings cheerleaders came to cheer on the crowd while they bid on items such as Twins/Yankees tickets and a vacation getaway! It was a great night and brought in more than $12,000 in honor of Michelle's fundraising campaign!
