Fidlar Technologies would like to recognize the Orange County, Indiana, Recorder’s Office, who recently organized a silent auction for charity. Back in December 2019, Heather Henderson, Orange County Deputy Recorder, and her office were responsible for putting together their annual event focused on giving back to their community. This year, Heather and her office decided to host a silent auction which would call for participating offices – a total of 6 offices competed! – to create Christmas decorations of various forms that would then be auctioned off.
“We recently held a silent auction for charity where each of the 6 participating offices in our building put together a holiday decoration and accepted silent bids. At the end of the event, the decoration with the highest bid won and got to choose the charity that ALL the bids went to. We ended up being able to donate around $400 to Cloth A Child! It was a great success and we’re happy to have been able to support such a great charity.”
-Heather Henderson, Orange County, Indiana, Deputy Recorder
At the end of the auction period, the decoration with the highest bid would be the winner and would be able to choose the charity that they would support, which ended up being Cloth A Child. All bids on all of the decorations were totaled and each office matched their total donation, bringing the entire amount up to around $400, a great sum of money for a great charity, provided by great people. Cloth A Child hosts an annual event in Orange County, where they estimate that clothing an individual child costs around $100. With the help and support of the great people in the Orange County, Indiana Recorder’s Office, four children had a very, merry Christmas in 2019.
It comes as no surprise to us that many of our county partners do more than just record Deeds — they perform goodDEEDS. By sharing as many of these good deeds as possible, we hope to raise awareness of the various charities and organizations they contribute to. We want to build their momentum and effectiveness in achieving their very important goals.
