Marisa, if you read my post correctly and with more attention you'd realize that the SILENT auction's proceeds went to Reptile Rescue, Canada, and not the auction that was going on in the HALL.
You seem very angry about the whole show, try to relax. I'm sure nobody cares anymore regarding the vendors that didn't show. That's their problem. Let's get on with our lives already.
