“Wow what auctioneers! Wow what a team!” On April 12 in the historic Walnut Room of Macy’s State Street Store in Chicago, Jim Lestinsky and Jonathan Kraft turned a charitable event live auction into magic. Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) hosted its 22nd Annual Spring Gala to support services to domestic violence victims and their children. 300 guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails, silent auction, seated dinner, dancing and an outstanding live auction lead by Jim and Jonathan. Never before has CAWC been able to raise the amount of money that was raised at this live auction portion of the program. Jim and Jonathan’s ability to “work the crowd” and involve people in the action was wonderful to watch. They passionately “told our story” which responded in hands being raised not just once but again and again. Guest after guests commented on how Jim and Jonathan “made” the event! CAWC will be forever grateful for the role that Jim and Jonathan played in making this event such a huge success.” Anne Borg, Director of Development, CAWC
