This year, staff from George Mackie Library, Ladner Pioneer Library and Tsawwassen Library gathered together for their annual combined Christmas dinner and Auction for a Cause.

Everyone was asked to bring a hand-made item to be auctioned off to fellow co-workers. Items ranged from a live wreath, jams, apple pies, poppycock, scarves, jewelry and a quilt to a lamp made from discarded CDs.

Gillian McLeod, Manager of Delta Libraries, played auctioneer, with librarians Jill Klaponski and Curtis Acton acting as back-ups.

After an evening of laughter and competitive bidding, $1,600 was raised.

All proceeds were donated to Deltassist Family and Community Services.

This was the fourth annual Auction for a Cause.
