As if running a busy business and raising two children as a single father isn’t fulfilling and all-consuming enough, I took on a big project last winter and spring: Co-Chairman of the Columbus Downtown Kiwanis Club annual benefit auction.
Whew. Anyone who’s ever done something similar can attest – it’s a part-time job. But what a fantastic part-time gig it was.
Months of committee meetings, canvassing for donations and coordinating all the arrangements with our very stunning venue, the Columbus Museum of Art, and we surpassed our fundraising goal – over $20,000 was raised for the Columbus Kiwanis Foundation, to benefit the children of Central Ohio.
