Humane Society of Central Illinois’ Annual Dinner Auction A Huge Success!

Central Illinois Humane Society Auction Corporate Sponsor, Cornerstone Business SolutionsIn my opinion, one of the greatest benefits of owning a business is the feeling that comes with being able to contribute something back to the community.  A few years ago, my wife, Krista McBeath and I both decided to become corporate sponsors for the Humane Society of Central Illinois.  It was actually our “Christmas presents” to each other and it was an easy decision.  We both have a heart for animals and after touring the location when knew what a great organization and cause it was.

We’ve been very fortunate from the very beginning to meet an incredible woman who is an active board member for the organization, Kathy Schniedwind.  Her passion and commitment to the organization has really been the driving force toward helping my wife and myself get more involved.  I can’t say enough good things about her, just that she’s one of those rare, unbelievable individuals that makes those surrounding her do their best and feel great doing it.  It’s no wonder that she had such a successful career in the ISU athletics department.

Anyway, one of the annual signature fundraising events for the HSCI is the annual charity auction and dinner.   What’s incredible is the efforts and contributions that so many community members give to raise so much to help this charity.  My wife and I personally collected donations from dozens of generous local business owners who contributed to the cause and that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to all those that donated time, money and gifts.

It all came together Saturday night, May 17th at the Double Tree in Bloomington, IL and it was an incredibly magical night.  As corporate sponsors, we were provided a dinner table for ten.  I can’t think of a better event than raising money for a great cause while enjoying a wonderful evening of food and laughter with great friends!

Monday we got the exhilarating news that the fund-raising goal and previous record had been shattered, which was the icing on the cake!  This has left Krista and I are exhilarated and looking forward to becoming even more involved with this great cause.
