Biz gives back big time

Masters of ceremonies Sarah Daniel and Zack Spencer point to the winning bidder in the live segment of the 21st annual Business Gives Back Christmas auction at the Barking Parrot Bar last week. A total of about $88,000 (gross) was raised at the event which will be distributed to a wide range of groups that help people in need during the Christmas season. The amount is the second largest ever raised by the event which has so far brought in nearly $1 million in gross revenues. - Mark Brett/Western News
