No where else will collectors have an opportunity to acquire personal items, offered by HK notables, than from the Live Charity Auction.
Leanna Barron was the live auctioneer at the HK Reunion's Live Charity Auction in Rosemont, Illinois in conjunction with the International Collectible Exposition. Eight items were donated by Harmony Ball Company staff members. Included was a Puffin Pin, with "Pete" rather than "Rosemont" on the face, from the first Lake Michigan HK boat tour in 1997. Martin Perry contributed a well used pipe from his days as a shepherd plus some old photos. Proceeds from the event benefit NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill), where $2,770 was raised. Those happy winners are shown below:
Mary Chamberlain, Erikka Zowlenik, Susan Gruhn,
Anita Anderson, ?, Beth Reno, and Susan Shemberger
